Research Summary:

I received my B.S. from Arizona State University, where I worked with Steve Neuberg, studying evolutionary psychology, prejudice, and stereotyping. After graduation, I worked as a researcher at University of Wisconsin-Madison with Trish Devine, where I studied prejudice, ostracism, and self-esteem.

One of my current lines of research examines the effects of stereotype threat over time. Under stereotype threat, members of negatively stereotyped groups experience negative emotional, motivational, physical, and behavioral consequences. Specifically, I am interested in the ways that threatening experiences can get under the skin and have long-lasting and deleterious effects, a process we have referred to as “stereotype threat perseverance”.

I am also interested in the way that things like affirmation and other identity-buffering processes may be embedded in everyday life, particularly across cultures. To that end, I am currently looking at cultural differences in Spain and the US, as well as between Latinos and whites in the US, to see how culturally embedded practices may be associated with psychological and physical well-being.
