Bio

I teach General Psychology, Social Psychology, and the Research Methods & Statistics course sequence. I am a social psychologist with broad interests in social cognition and the psychology of prejudice and discrimination. I have two main lines of research. The first is about people’s emotional and behavioral responses to learning about their own implicit racial bias after taking the implicit association test (IAT). I also study social cognitive models of the cross-race recognition deficit--that is, the tendency to have greater difficulty recognizing faces of races other than one’s own.


What I love About Emmanuel: 
The students of course! Not to sound cliché, but, without a doubt, what I love most about Emmanuel are the students who inspire me and from whom I learn as much from them as they do me. I especially value those relationships with students who take the time to get to know and connect with me both in and out of the classroom, during office hours, etc.
