Scholarly Interests:

My research focuses broadly on how belief systems affect the means by which we make evaluations and pursue important goals. I am especially interested in how ideology influences the use of different types of evaluative information and how gender role traditionalism influences motivational approaches to gender-related goals. I am also interested in how expressions of positive intergroup emotions (specifically pride) affect how we evaluate social groups, as well as how our general beliefs about the importance of different types of evaluative information intersect with the means by which evaluations are made.
