About

My research tackles the question of how and why biased thoughts (beliefs) and feelings (attitudes) of social groups change.

How and why do attitudes about groups defined by race, gender, age, sexuality and more shift towards or away from prejudice? Why do some attitudes change while others remain stagnant? What are the interventions that can best shift the biases of a society, organization, or individual?

I use a multi-level, multi-method approach: I consider change within the micro-level of an individual, within meso-level aggregates (e.g., demographic groups, organizations), and at largest macro-level of society. To do so requires methodological insights from across social, developmental, cognitive, and quantitative psychology, as well as computer science, organizational behavior, sociology, and economics, including laboratory experiments, natural language processing, time series, and big data analyses.

I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University, working with Mahzarin Banaji (Department of Psychology), and at the University of Toronto, working with Wil Cunningham (Rotman School of Management and Department of Psychology).

Starting Summer 2023, I will be an Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
