My name is Elysia Vaccarino, I am currently a doctoral student in the Social-Personality Psychology Department at York University in Toronto, Canada. 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, person perception as it relates to intergroup dynamics, as well as underlying motivations of, and strategies to reduce, prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination.
In June 2013, I completed my Honours B.Sc. with High Distinction at the University of Toronto, specializing in psychology.
