I am interested in the way race shapes social cognitive processes, with a particular interest in perceptions of racial groups stereotypically associated with threat. My primary line of research examines visual attention, and assesses mechanisms underlying preferential attention to racial outgroup faces. In a second line of research, I am interested in the effects of socially diverse contexts on race-based responding.
