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.
By using a multi-method approach, I investigate the processes by which social categorization can form and maintain inequalities. That is, I examine the ways that perceiving group categories (e.g., race, gender) impact how we think, feel, and behave towards others, 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 and methods from many sub-fields beyond social psychology, including psychophysiology, and cognitive, developmental, personality, and industrial-organizational psychology.
