Assistant Professor

Research Focus

My research examines the social and economic factors that amplify discrimination, and the basic social cognitive and perceptual process through which our goals and motivations influence our behavior toward others.  I take a multilevel approach to research, integrating ideas and methods from experimental social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, behavioral decision-making, and psychophysics.  My ultimate aim is to understand the persistent and wide-spread inequalities that exist between groups in America and to inform interventions aimed at reducing group-based disparities in socio-economic and health outcomes.
