My perspective is based on my primary training in social and personality psychology, which has been supplemented by other frameworks and disciplines, including multicultural psychology, critical race studies, ethnic studies, and sociology. I employ a wide range of methodologies, including implicit methods, focus group interviews, survey studies, field studies, and laboratory experiments in my research, which centers on the experiences of marginalized peoples.
Broadly speaking, my research is on prejudice and discrimination. More specifically, I am interested in the association between discrimination experiences and minority identity and well-being. I am most interested in understanding the effects of contemporary, subtle forms of prejudice, such as microaggressions. Thus, we do research focused on the target's perspective (the person experiencing the microaggression) rather than the perpetrator (the person committing the microaggression).
