Research and Creative Works

Research Interest

My research focuses on stigma, intergroup relations, and social justice. My work seeks to understand the psychological processes through which prejudice, discrimination, stereotyping, marginalization, and inequality affect critical social, academic, and health outcomes, as well as factors that contribute to positive intergroup dynamics, in diverse populations.
