I just received my PhD from the Social Psychology program at the University of Virginia and will begin a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern working with Dr. Nicole Stephens and Dr. Sarah Townsend. My research focuses on prejudice and discrimination, and specifically, people's perceptions of prejudice and discrimination. My work aims to close this "perception gap" between minority and majority group members, which may in turn reduce intergroup tensions. Currently, my work is funded by a graduate research fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
