I have served on the faculty at Salem State University since Fall 1997.
I am a social psychologist and specialize in the psychology of prejudice, stereotyping and intergroup relations. My current research, with Managament Professor Anne-Marie Hakstian, focuses on retail discrimination and consumer racial profiling and jury decision making in retail discrimination cases. I am also very involved with campus wide efforts to create a welcoming and inclusive community at Salem State through professional development, community dialogue, and assessment.
I love supervising student research. Here are some recent student projects:
