Research Interests: 

My research interests are primarily concerned with intergroup relations and the underlying processes that influence expressions of prejudice and discrimination in the areas of race, gender, and policy. More specifically, I am interested in examining: (1) how common stereotypes influence interactions between majority and minority group members, (2) the social consequences of attempting to conceal biases, and (3) hoe perceptions of institutional policies vary based on group membership and other individual differences.
