Our research focuses on psychological phenomena associated with diversity. Our work generally concerns the ways in which social group memberships such as race and gender impact the way people think, feel, and behave. More specifically, we investigate antecedents and consequences of prejudice and stereotyping from dual perspectives: traditionally stigmatized and dominant groups. We are currently involved in several areas of research: (1) cognitive, affective, and behavioral dynamics and consequences of interracial contact and diversity, (2) detecting, confronting, and managing the threats associated with prejudice and discrimination, and (3) social categorization and identity management. Through the development of these research streams, we hope to contribute to a better understanding of both the promise and potential pitfalls of diverse environments.
