My research broadly examines prejudice, stereotyping, and the self. More specifically, my work focuses on two primary areas: (1) understanding how ideology and changes to the status hierarchy shape perceptions of bias against high-status social groups, and (2) identifying the consequences of within-group variability in the experience of stigma. I examine the causes and consequences of perceiving anti-White and anti-male bias. I also examine how variation in physical appearance affects judgments of minority groups: Blacks, Latinos and Asian Americans.
