Ph.D. Expected 2019, Tufts University, Social Psychology
Advisor: Dr. Keith B. Maddox

B.A. 2010, Colgate University
Major: Behavioral neuroscience

Minor: English literature

Research Interests
I investigate person perception from two perspectives of intergroup contact: non-stigmatized and stigmatized individuals'. In one line of work, I examine mental representations of social groups and whether exposure to typical versus atypical group members leads to stereotype change. In another, I examine how a perceiver's identity as a stigmatized group member influences face-processing.
