Research Interests

The Lay Theories of Prejudice (LTP) Lab examines how 1) lay beliefs about prejudice affect marginalized and privileged group members’ performance, behavior, and health, 2) how and when prejudice confrontations reduce prejudice and impact the health of confronters, and 3) how individual and organizational claims of allyship are perceived. The LTP Lab leverages multiple methodologies, including behavioral, implicit cognition, and physiological, to examine basic and applied questions about how people perceive, experience, and combat prejudice in their day-to-day lives.
