Research Interests


My work primarily focuses on two distinct lines of research. In one line of research, I examine the differences between implicit and explicit attitude measures in terms of attitude formation, attitude change, and attitude-behavior correspondence. This line of research also investigates how discrepancies between implicit and explicit attitude measures can elicit increased information processing and increased utilization of self-regulatory resources. In the second line of research, I examine the mechanisms underlying the detrimental effects of negative stereotypes on performance and learning. My research also examines how people form impressions of individuals, groups, and the self.
