Title: Assistant Teaching Professor
Campus/Building: Livingston Campus / Tillett Hall 313
I earned my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Syracuse University. I study pedagogy (teaching) and issues related to social justice such as sexism and ethnic prejudice. I am broadening my theoretical approach to include how these social justice issues relate to our legal and political systems, and to our political ideologies. I am especially interested in how cognitive representations relate to the awareness of social injustice.
My teaching interests are broad, and include:
Self and Identity
Psychology of Gender
Psychology of Prejudice
Psychology and Law
Regardless of the course, my teaching philosophy centers on developing critical thinking skills, strong communication skills, social awareness, and social responsibility.
