I am curious about how people reach judgments of others.  This includes everything from the thoughts we have about our thoughts 

to cognition outside of our awareness.


I often study the consequences of placing the self and others into social categories (race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation).  


Doctoral students and undergraduates collaborate on questions of shared interest including: 

How do negative racial stereotypes make Black students 

more certain they failed at a standardized test?

How do racial disparities in orthodontia care translate into 

disparities in employment?

How do social versus personal religious identities differ?
