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:

Introductory Psychology

Research Methods


Abnormal Psychology

Social Psychology

Social Cognition

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.
