Areas of Expertise
Stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination; Attribution theory; Decision-making; Applied Psychology
My primary areas of research explore multiple parts of the processes of both implicit and explicit stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination: from acquisition to application, and then finally to change. As far as applied psychology, I have been focusing on stereotyping and decision-making in the legal system, political realm, and the media.
