Intersectionality in Psychology

Intersectionality in Psychology

I study intersectionality, or the interconnected nature of social identities, (race, sexual orientation, gender, and socioeconomic status specifically) in processes of discrimination and prejudice. For example, I investigate gender stereotype threat in the LGBTQ community, explore the violence and aggression experienced by women of different races, and grapple with the current theoretical understandings of intersectionality within the field of social psychology. These issues are becoming more important in an increasingly complex world in which lines defining group memberships are becoming blurred.
