Human beings are incredibly diverse. Each of us has a racial identity, a gender identity, a sexual orientation, a religious identity, and so on. Yet the empirical literature on stereotyping and discrimination has, for the last several decades, tended to overlook this diversity. A central aim of my research program is to make the academic landscape on stereotyping more diverse by elucidating the ways in which stereotypes can jointly depend on multiple identity groups to which a person belongs. This research is consequential because a) stereotypes often do manifest differently toward those at different intersections of identities, b) these stereotypes in turn influence how we perceive one another, and c) social perception is reliably linked with discrimination.
These are my three most recent peer-reviewed papers on this topic. My research statement is available here.
