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.
