My research focuses on cultural, social-structural as well as political aspects of social psychology. In one line of research I investigate the consequences of power and status relationships on stereotyping and intergroup relations. Another series of studies focuses on the social-psychological construal of public policy issues and their underlying values. Lastly, I conduct research on the cultural self-construals, social comparison outcomes and the maintenance of cultural identity through symbols.

Primary Interests:

  • Culture and Ethnicity
  • Group Processes
  • Intergroup Relations
  • Judgment and Decision Making
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Political Psychology
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
