Additional Research Interests: Political, Prejudice, Intergroup conflict
I am generally interested in the interface between large-scale social structures and people’s attitudes and beliefs. My work has examined intergroup and political attitudes from the perspective of social dominance theory and authoritarianism, the relationship between stereotype subscription and judgments of societal fairness, the nature of racial prejudice, and psychological correlates of political attitudes.
