Research Interests
Generally, my research interests include interracial interactions, stereotyping, prejudice and power. In particular, I would like to explore ways to reduce the negative effects of racial and gender bias in different context (i.e. educational settings, law enforcement interactions, etc.). Currently, I am exploring the ways in which individuals respond to bias confrontations from both stigmatized and non-stigmatized group members.

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.

M.A. 2014, New York University, Psychology
Advisor: Dr. David M. Amodio

B.A. 2010, George Washington University
Major: Psychology
Minor: Hispanic Literature

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.
