Interests and Expertise

My research interests include examining the affective concomitants of African American racial identity attitudes, as well as exploring how individuals’ attitudes about race influence how they perceive instances of racial discrimination. Additionally, I have begun to examine how the endorsement of particular forms of prejudice influences how those with privilege evaluate instances of discrimination. My teaching interests include; African American Racial Identity Theory, How Implicit Forms of Prejudice Influence the Personality and Behaviors of Victims and Perpetrators of Discrimination, and Cross-Cultural/Multicultural Issues in Clinical Psychology.
