  • Description of Research:

    My primary research interests include intergroup processes, stereotyping, prejudice, intergroup contact, and social identification. My research aim is to better understand the psychological causes and consequence of negative intergroup relations. The study of intergroup relations involves the examination of the social, cognitive, and interpersonal processes involved in intergroup behavior. This research seeks to better understand negative out-group stereotypes and biases with the applied goal of improving intergroup relations through the development of real-world interventions.
