Social and Personality
Advising notes:
I am open to the possibility of taking on a new advisee. The Social/Personality Area faculty contact short-listed applicants as we make our way through the admissions process. It is not necessary to send email messages about admissions to me at this point. Thanks for your patience with this process.


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.
