The Racial Equity & Diversity Lab at Tufts University conducts experimental social psychology research with the aims of understanding and addressing contemporary racism. We study interpersonal and contextual influences on racially biased perception, judgment, and behavior. We study how people communicate, think, and interact in interracial contexts. We aspire to conduct research with practical implications for ameliorating racial inequities in real-world domains including higher education, the criminal justice system, and popular media coverage. We are committed to conducting theoretically grounded and methodologically rigorous scientific investigation in the promotion of anti-racist objectives.
