Research Interests: My research focuses on the social cognitive processes that contribute to stereotyping and prejudice. I have a particular interest in early or "automatic" processes, such as the automatic stereotypic associations that are activated when a member of a target group is encountered. Of late, I have been researching stereotyping from a facial features perspective and I have begun to apply basic stereotyping findings to the health domain.
