I am a doctoral student working with Jack Dovidio and Marianne LaFrance. I received my BA from Colgate University, majoring in both psychology and women’s studies. Broadly, I am interested in understanding and intervening in gender prejudices and stereotypes. Currently, I am focused on understanding the interplay between gender and nonverbal displays. My work uses behavioral and electrophysiological measures to assess which cue is more meaningful to participants and in what contexts. I am also interested in alleged gender-neutral representations, including the psychological differences between genderless neutral representations – that are “gender-blind” – and gendered neutral representations – that explicitly include both men and women. I am interested in uncovering and understanding the potential implications of androcentrism to subtle forms of dehumanization.
