Our conscious experience gives us pretty good stories about why we think and behave in the ways we do. But, it turns out that the stories we tell ourselves are only part of the tale; there are important influences that are at work in our social lives outside of our conscious awareness. In my lab we study attitudes and stereotypes that operate automatically, that predict unintentional behaviors, and that are measured with indirect measures.

Primary Interests:

  • Attitudes and Beliefs
  • Person Perception
  • Persuasion, Social Influence
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Research Methods, Assessment
  • Social Cognition
