Research Interests
My research interests include racial/gender identity, implicit bias, and confrontation. In particular, I'm interested in exploring ways to reduce the negative effects of racial and gender bias in different contexts (i.e. educational settings, organizations, etc.). I am currently investigating the ways in which majority allies can use their identities to effectively confront bias and improve the well-being of minority groups.

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

M.A. 2015, Tufts University, Social Psychology
Adviser: 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. Because non-stigmatized targets have relatively higher status, I propose that stigmatized perceivers deploy more effort to form accurate impressions of them.

B.A. 2010, George Washington University

Research Interests
My research interests involve examining the complexities of intergroup relations via social and affective neuroscientific approaches. In particular, I am interested in the cognitive and affective processes that result in decreased empathy for racial and ethnic outgroups. I am also interested in the impact of perceived prejudice and discrimination on a target's visual perception of the physical environment.
