Associate Editor, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology

My primary interests are social inference and social memory and the majority of my work has been focused on the perception of individuals and social groups – specifically, the unintentional processes underlying social inference making (e.g., spontaneous trait inference and trait transference). Other areas of interest include: attitudes, anticipated regret, self-enhancement strategies, social identity, and counterfactual thinking.

Primary Interests:

  • Attitudes and Beliefs
  • Judgment and Decision Making
  • Person Perception
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Self and Identity
  • Social Cognition
