In the Social Perception and Cognition lab, we examine how subtle patterns people encounter every day can reinforce and even challenge social inequities.  We integrate social cognition, vision science, and developmental methods to answer questions about the maintenance of power differences among social groups.  We draw on various approaches with the goal of designing research questions so that they contribute to scientific knowledge and have clear, broad social benefits.  Click the links above to learn more about the lab and how you can get involved.

Note: I will review applications for PhD students to join the SPAC lab for Fall 2022. You should also check out my awesome colleagues Garriy Shteynberg, Michael Olson, Jeff Larsen, and Lowell Gaertner!
