Who am I?
I am a Social Psychologist and Assistant Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I earned my B.A. in Psychology from The University of Texas at Austin, my M.A. in Psychology from Northwestern University, and Ph.D. in Psychology at Yale University. I also served as Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity Fellow prior to joining the faculty at UNC.
Broadly, my research examines the psychological factors shaping perceptions of, and motivations for, reducing racial inequality across several societal domains. My primary research examines how the lay tendency to associate racism with interpersonal biases, or with the structural disadvantage of racial groups, influences beliefs about societal racial inequality. My work also examines the psychological factors underlying misperceptions of racial progress in the U.S.
