My research interests center on social justice, particularly in the area of health care disparities. My work is informed by the social psychology of attitudes and prejudice, the psychology of women and gender, and legal principles pertaining to these areas. I have recently become interested in the role that ambivalent sexism and aversive racism play in the allocation of health care to women and minorities.
