The goal of my research is to understand the interplay between people's view of themselves and their social beliefs. In the area of self perception, I have been particularly interested in egocentric biases, such as social projection and self-enhancement. In the area of social perception, my interests have been focused on social categorization and stereotyping. Rather than studying these topics in isolation, my research strategy is to try to understand the linkages among them.

Primary Interests:

  • Interpersonal Processes
  • Person Perception
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Self and Identity
