Research:
My research focuses on the psychological and neural substrates of impression formation and their relation to real-world behaviors. In particular, my work aims to shed light on the neural correlates of stereotype and prejudice change. It is my goal to utilize a multi-level approach to investigate these processes beginning with molecular determinants, such as genes, through substrate and systems activation, and finally to behavioral outcomes. I intend to translate basic neural and social psychological research into practical applications for bias change in real-world situations, such as in economic and judicial contexts.
