I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto conducting research in the area of Social Psychology. I am also postdoctoral researcher with the Engendering Success in STEM research consortium.
My research investigates intergroup processes and behavior. By using a multi-method approach, I investigate the psychological processes by which social categorization can form and maintain social inequalities. That is, I investigate how perceiving people as social categories (e.g., race, gender) impacts how we think, feel, and behave towards them, as well as, contextual (i.e., situational difference) and person factors (i.e., individual differences) that moderate these processes. To accomplish this work, I draw on psychological theories from many sub-fields in psychology (cognition, psychophysiology, developmental).
