My research examines the contents and consequences of widespread beliefs about gender. I am inspired by questions such as: How do gender role norms shape people’s behavior? How do gendered environments influence people’s occupational outcomes? How can messages about gender promote inequity and harm? By asking these questions, I seek to understand, reframe, and minimize social inequities related to gender and sexuality. My research utilizes mixed methods (self-reports, behavior, physiological measures), and I collaborate with researchers across subareas and disciplines—including clinical and industrial-organizational psychology, sociology, and health sciences—to develop research paradigms that yield both theoretical and applied knowledge.
