I am studying under the supervision of Dr. Kerry Kawakami in the Social Cognition Lab. I am interested in a range of topics, including processes of social categorization, confrontation to prejudice (and perceptions of confronters), social norms, diversity strategies, as well as strategies to reduce bias.
