The CRIS lab is a social psychology lab on the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University supervised by Professor Diana Sanchez. As a social psychology lab, our studies employ diverse methodologies including explicit survey measures, implicit reaction time responses and physiological measures.  We scientifically assess

(1) antecedents and consequences of gender, racial, and concealable identities, as well as, body prejudice

(2) discrimination and stereotyping

(3) the process of identification and categorization for social category members and

(4) research on close relationships that documents the role of gender role constraints, and coping with stigma.
