Research Interests:

  • Intergroup relations
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Altruism and Helping
  • Nonverbal Communication

My work centers around issues of social power and social relations, both between groups and between individuals. I explore both conscious (explicit) and unconscious (implicit) influences on how people think about, feel about, and behave toward others based on group membership. I continue to conduct research on aversive racism, a contemporary subtle form of prejudice, and on techniques for reducing conscious and unconscious biases.
