I am curious about how people reach judgments of others. This includes cognitions outside our awareness (implicit) and thoughts we have about our thoughts (meta-cognition).
I often study the consequences of placing the self and others into social categories (race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation).
Methodologically, lab projects typically include experimental research methods, exploration of mechanism, and open science practices.
Students in the lab collaborate on questions of shared interest including:
How do negative stereotypes make Black students
more certain they failed a standardized test?
How do racial disparities in orthodontia care
produce disparities in employment?
How do religious identities and expression of gratitude
differ across cultures?
