The Diversity & Intergroup Relations Lab conducts experimental research regarding social perception, judgment, behavior, and memory in diverse settings. Much of our work examines how people communicate, think, and interact in interracial contexts. We are motivated by the desire to advance social psychological theory related to this wide range of processes, but also to conduct research with practical implications for real-world domains such as higher education, the legal system, and popular media. We approach these issues from a social cognition perspective, but also one that emphasizes the importance of measuring actual behavior in the course of investigating human nature. Learn more >
