Diversity & Social Cognition Lab

We investigate how diversity impact social cognitive processes related to racial attitudes, behaviors, and categorization.

In our lab we employ a rich set of methodologies that include experience sampling, longitudinal approaches, analyzing nonverbal behaviors, reverse correlation, eye tracking, and mouse tracking paradigms, to test assumptions about intergroup relations across three main areas: racial diversity, race-related norms, and social perception.

Some of the questions were are currently interested in:

How does diversity shape how we talk about race?

What do people think of when they hear the word “diversity”?

Do race-relations operate differently online?

How does race influence emotion perception?

What factors influence how we perceive Multiracial individuals?
