My research is, broadly, on the role of language in different aspects of social psychology, especially intergroup processes, culture and identity, as well as stereotypes and prejudices. I am also pursuing the incorporation of big data methods and natural language processing into my research.

Are you interested in gaining research experience?

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in gaining research experience within one of my research areas.

I am particularly interested in working with students on independent studies (PSY480/PSY481), within which you will design and implement a study, analyze and interpret the results, and disseminate your findings to an academic audience. This is a great experience for those students interested in pursuing graduate studies.

As an alternative, interested students may also volunteer on one of my current projects.
