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?
