I am a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at California State University, Long Beach. My training is in social psychology, with expertise in quantitative analysis. My research is both theoretical and applied, and through service and consulting I apply lessons learned from this research to help address contemporary issues of educational inequality. My work particularly focuses on the influence of stereotypes and social identifies in shaping the development of studentsí educational and career interests.


On these pages, Iíve provided information about my research interests, funding, publications, teaching, as well as links to the websites of some of my collaborators and other related sites. You can also learn more about the activities and students in my research lab by visiting the Motivation & Social Identity Lab website.
