The central theme of Jamie's research is to find evidence of the mechanism underlying evaluative judgments, including both meta-cognitive and automatic processes. A second theme is to explore the consequences of placing the self and others into social categories (race, gender, sexual orientation). The bulk of his research reflects the intersection of these two themes. Current projects in the lab include investigating meta-cognitive processes underlying certainty judgments (including the role of accessibility and certainty in standardized test performance), stereotype traits that are unique to the ingroup, and racial identity tailoring in advertising.
