Current Research

My core research is rooted in social categorization, that is, the process and consequences of using categories to understand people. My resulting work spans intergroup relations and prejudice, person perception, and cooperative interaction. Specific topics in these areas include the flexible use of categories and stereotypes in defining the self and others, the impact of categorization on face and identity recognition, and the processing of multiple simultaneously influential category divisions. In interdisciplinary work, I apply the core processes involved in social categorization, for example comparative self-evaluation, to better understand knowledge sharing and learning in cooperative interaction.
