Research Interests:
My research addresses social psychological issues using a multi-level approach that integrates social psychological and neuroscience perspectives. Topics of interest include prejudice, stereotyping, attitudes, emotion, and face perception. Recent projects have used event-related brain potentials (ERPs) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure affective and cognitive processes associated with person perception, including early social categorization processes and mechanisms by which prejudice and stereotype activation are detected and inhibited.
