Doctoral Student, Psychology

Research and Background:

I am interested in the role of multiple social identities and their effects on intergroup relations. More specifically, I aim to identify the unconscious processes involved in shaping important social identities, and how they relate to people’s self-esteem and attitudes towards outgroup members. I am particularly interested in racial relations, and ways to reduce prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination.
