I focus on three areas of psychological research. First, in the area of health disparities (social inequalities in health), I investigate the relationship between social hierarchy, socio-emotional processes, and depression. In a second line of research, I examine the role of identity in political participation and collective action. Most recently, I have begun a project on the role of multicultural curriculum, identity-based bullying, and bias reduction in an elementary school context.
