Suzanne Horwitz is a graduate student in the Yale social psychology and developmental department working with John Dovidio. Broadly, her research examines the role that social psychological processes play in perpetuating societal wealth inequality. She is currently completing her dissertation on the causes and consequences of implicit wealth bias. This work focuses on the ways in which people judge others based on their wealth, specifically looking at the distinct roles of explicit social evaluations and implicit social evaluations in regulating discrimination and favoritism. A second research focus is how social attitudes form and develop when social group boundaries are perceived to be flexible (such as with wealth groups in America). Overall, she hopes that an increased understanding of inequality will contribute to the broader goal of creating an equitable society.
