Advising notes:
I am open to the possibility of welcoming a new advisee into my lab. For the sake of fairness to all applicants, I do not engage in interactions (emails, calls, visits) with prospective students prior to working with my UW colleagues to generate a shortlist of candidates. 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.
