    ​My research uncovers the social, cognitive, and neural processes underlying various facets of impression formation. More specifically, my work focuses on how perceptual cues and person-knowledge are used to form impressions of others based on ubiquitous social dimensions, such as race and social status, guiding and often biasing how we navigate our social world. To address these questions, I study how fundamental characteristics of perceivers (e.g. their experiences and motivation) and the perceived (e.g. their familiarity, age, gender, race, status) shape perception and evaluation. My laboratory utilizes wide-ranging methods with an emphasis on social cognitive behavioral tasks and functional neuroimaging (fMRI), but also event-related potentials (ERP) and psychophysiological measurements. Because of the centrality of impression formation processes to our everyday social interactions, the insights into the functioning of our social mind gained from my research also provide avenues to address social biases that can often lead to prejudice.
