Research Interests: My research interests include the circumstances that might lead one to either justify or suppress genuine prejudice. I am further interested in how social norms influence the likelihood to express such prejudices, and how significant cultural and political events shift social norms. In this norms research, I utilize classic social-psychological theories (such as social comparison and attribution theory) to better understand the complexities of prejudice.​
