Research

research overview

  • I work primarily in stereotyping and intergroup relations. My work includes the role of race in decisions to shoot armed and unarmed targets, and in particular how expertise can facilitate cognitive control over such decisions. A second line concerns implicit role associations between women and childrearing, and men and work. We argue well-learned implicit cultural associations increase the likelihood that professionally trained women will leave their positions when tensions between work and family responsiblities become too great, and decrease the likelihood that men will make these tradeoffs. A third area concerns ideologies towards interethnic interactions and the conditions under which these can facilitate versus harm interethnic relations. A fourth line of research extends race ideologies to gender ideologies examining the role these play in the underrepresentation of women in STEM fields.
