I joined the faculty at Wesleyan University in the fall of 2011 after completing my Ph.D. at the University of Washington.

My research broadly examines prejudice, stereotyping, and the self and falls into two main categories. In one line of work, I explore consequences of within-group variation in phenotypic prototypicality (variation in racial minorities’ physical appearance) in an effort to better comprehend the unique experiences of individuals from stigmatized groups. In a second line of work, I study high-status groups’ perceptions of bias against their own group. I examine how ideologies that justify social inequality affect perceptions of anti-White and anti-male bias.
