Personal profile

Research interests

Broadly, I study how prejudice and stereotypes emerge across the lifespan. My research interests fall into the following three areas:

Development of (Implicit) Prejudice and Stereotypes in Childhood: When do children begin to use race to guide their beliefs and cognitions about others? Is there a critical point for interventions in childhood?

Visual Attention during Person Perception: How do we process outgroup faces? Does visual attention correspond to behavior? Is visual attention malleable?

Behavior during Interracial Interactions: How do children and adults negotiate intergroup interactions? Can contextual cues impact behavior?
