Lecturer of Psychology, University of Washington

My research explores how perceptions of threats and opportunities affect the way we think about and respond toward others in our social environment. My research largely focuses on the effects of social goals (e.g., affiliation and friendship, status-seeking, mate acquisition and self-protection) on stereotyping and prejudice. My other research interests include morality/values, self-presentation and evolutionary psychology.
