My work uses social science theory to ignite social change. I am particularly interested in the degree to which people's social identities (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity) can influence their sense of belonging, and in turn, their well-being and success. Most recently, my research focuses on understanding the experiences of groups of people who do not "fit" in computer science (e.g., women), with special attention to when and how those individuals thrive.

Primary Interests:

  • Applied Social Psychology
  • Emotion, Mood, Affect
  • Gender Psychology
  • Intergroup Relations
  • Motivation, Goal Setting
  • Prejudice and Stereotyping
  • Self and Identity
