My research interests include implicit social cognition, attitudes, prejudice, and stereotyping. Specifically, I am investigating effective methods for changing implicit social biases. Many approaches to change implicit biases have been identified but, little is known about which approaches produce the most impactful and long-lasting changes. My research program seeks to address this gap. The breadth of this work has included: examining the role of moral emotions in reducing prejudice toward gay individuals, experimentally comparing eighteen interventions to reduce implicit racial biases, and a forthcoming meta-analysis on experimental methods to change implicit attitudes, stereotypes, self-esteem, and identity.
