Research interests:

Diversity, intergroup contact, belongingness, and how these relate to success (pedagogical and otherwise) at University. Scholarship of teaching and learning and educational leadership. I am also interested in prejudice, attitude generalization, reconciliation, and ingroup identity. Please note: As teaching-track faculty, I do not supervise graduate students.
