I am a social psychologist and Distinguished Professor at Rutgers New Brunswick’s Psychology Department. I have served as Department Chair twice (2010-2013; 2018-2022). I am a founding member of Heterodox Academy, the Academic Freedom Alliance, and the Society for Open Inquiry in the Behavioral Sciences. My active lab typically includes 5-15 undergraduate research assistants (freshman and sophomores welcome) and 2-3 graduate students. I am looking to admit a new graduate student to start Fall 2022.
My research is on stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination; political radicalization; and identification and reform of suboptimal scientific practices in social science.
