Overall, I study the experience and consequences of possessing diverse group memberships with the goal of advancing sensitivity for how we vary and celebrating where we share common ground. I am interested in investigating various outcomes as they relate to (1) cultural norms for communication and emotion regulation and (2) discrimination from the perspective of targets and observers. My work has incorporated mixed methods (e.g., self-report, behavioral observations, psychophysiological) in service of improving our understanding of and promoting the quality of life for diverse populations.

At the recent conference for the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (Jan. 17-19, 2013) held in New Orleans, I gave a symposium talk entitled "Emerging uses of the force platform in intergroup and interpersonal relations research" as part of the symposium entitled "New tools: Open source and publicly available technology for social psychology research" (Session H-11). If you are interested in obtaining my talk's supplemental materials on using the Wii Balance Board in your own research, please use the "Contact" tab to request them from me.
