I am interested in both theoretical and applied issues related to gender stereotypes. I am currently working on projects related to essentialist ideas about gender differences, which concern whether individuals think that gender differences are largely the result of biological or environmental factors. I have also conducted research looking at perceptions of parental leave policies and shifts in "good mother" and "good father" stereotypes. I have taught courses on Stereotypes and Prejudice in my faculty positions as well as courses in Introductory Psychology, Social Psychology, Statistics, Methods, and Group Identity.
