Biography

Advisor: Dr. Monica Biernat 

Research Lab: Biernat Lab

Research Interests: My research interests center around prejudice, stereotyping, and intergroup relations. I am broadly interested in the social and cognitive processes that underly our judgements, attitudes, and perceptions of others. Some questions I'm interested in are: How do stereotypes, prejudice, and implicit bias affect the expectations we have and the attributions we make about others? What role does sterotypes and prejudice play in reinforcing intergroup power dynamics and social status? How does being a member of a stigmatized identity or sterotyped group affect the individual?
