Research Interests: 

My research investigates a range of topics relating to prejudice and stereotyping at the interpersonal and institutional levels. Specifically, I am interested in exploring: (1) how common stereotypes influence intergroup interactions, (2) perceptions of policies concerning race and gender, and (3) why certain contexts produce a "lack of fit" between the institution and underrepresented individuals, and how this lack of fit can be ameliorated.
