Advising notes:
I am open to admitting a new graduate student this year. Unfortunately, I cannot reply to individual emails or calls from potential applicants, and I do not meet with applicants prior to our interview process. The strongest applicants to my lab have interests grounded in our general work and have scholarly overlap with other faculty members in the social/personality area, broader department, or broader UW. You can learn more about our research by exploring my lab's web pages.


Research in my Social Identity Laboratory examines the interplay between social psychological theoretical perspectives and social issues. Much of our research examines the self and social identity; particularly from the perspective of members of socially marginalized groups. Additional domains of research interest include diversity, immigration, social inequality, and employment discrimination law. Our research incorporates a variety of methods from psychology and related disciplines, and examines questions both in the lab and field.
