Academic Research

My academic research examines how psychological factors contribute to social disparities and tests theoretically-informed interventions to reduce these disparities. In one line of research, I examine the processes through which the physical context promotes gender and social class inequities. More specifically, I explore how group differences in perceptions and use of public space contribute to gender and social class disparities in belonging. In a second line of work, I document gender inequities in business and test ways to improve women's belonging, performance, and career outcomes. In a third line of research, I investigate processes that produce and maintain racial disparities in healthcare.
