Professor of Psychology, Associate Chair
My experimental research program focuses on implicit stereotyping, prejudice, stereotype threat, and effects of category salience on test performance and academic motivation. My current projects include studies of how environmental factors influence women students in math and science, and how stereotypes affect interracial communication.
