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. I examine how within-group variation in racial minorities’ physical appearance shapes: (1) how they are perceived by others, and (2) their personal experiences. My work also investigates intergroup threats. For instance, I study how racial progress increases Whites’ tendency to perceive anti-White discrimination.
