Phone: (847) 467-3887
I study social perception and judgment. I focus in particular on the dynamics of stereotyping -- how stereotypes are represented in the mind, how and when they get activated, and what consequences their activation has for basic mental operations such as attention, inference, and memory. I am interested in both implicit and explicit aspects of stereotyping and prejudice. I also study the relationship between affect and social cognition and the ways in which the social context influences basic mental processes.
