My research examines how racial and cultural group memberships influence the various stages of interaction, from categorization to impression formation to social support. For example, in ongoing research, I investigate the cultural, dispositional, and situational factors that influence perceivers' racial categorization of multiracial persons. My research seeks to facilitate intergroup understanding and promote positive intergroup relations.
