My research interests are in social psychology with an emphasis on social cognition and person perception. More specifically, I study the processes involved in stereotyping and prejudice. I am interested in the social categorization process and how contextual information affects social judgment. I also study the factors involved in confronting prejudicial remarks, and I explore how confrontation can be a possible prejudice reduction strategy.
