I received my Ph.D. in social psychology from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, in 1998. I teach research methods, the graduate professional issues course (readings), graduate level social psychology, and special topics in social psychology (e.g., attitudes, social influence, interpersonal relationships, prejudice). My research is primarily in the area of attitude change and social influence, broadly defined. Current projects investigate attitudes toward immigrants and other stigmatized groups, the relationship between political orientation and expressions of prejudice, and research ethics (e.g., proper presentation of consent forms, participant views on “big data”).
