Bio

My teaching interests are general psychology and social psychology. Current research centers around emotional and behavioral responses to negative racial bias feedback on the implicit association test (IAT). My other interest is in social cognitive models of the cross-race identification bias--that is, a tendency for greater difficulty recognizing faces of races other than one's own.
