I am a Professor of Psychology, and Social Psychologist in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, IN.
As a Social Psychologist, my research examines the impact of stereotyping & prejudice on stigmatized groups. I am interested in the intersection of gender and social class, particularly how stereotypes about low-income women influence real-world outcomes. I apply my research in educational settings, and am an expert in FGLI student outcomes.
Additionally, I also work on issues of stereotype threat, dehumanization, intergroup relations, cross-cultural psychology, and the impact of single-sex environments on college-aged women.
I received my Ph.D. in Psychology at The New School for Social Research in 2008.
