Research Interests
My research interests span the fields of social and personality psychology, with specific attraction to problems in the areas of prejudice, stigma, social influence, and the social construction of gender. I enjoy collaborating with students at each stage of the research process—formulating a hypothesis, developing the methodology to test the hypothesis, collecting and analyzing data, and interpreting results. Conducting a scientific investigation is a terrific way to develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving.
