The BAR Project

Integrating alcohol myopia and objectification to understand sexual assault. Principal Investigator, RO1 AA025090, National Institutes of Health.

Bystanders in Sexual Assault Virtual Environments (Bystanders-SAVE)

Prejudice and violence are inextricably linked to the maintenance of the status quo.  Objectification, dehumanization, and aggression illustrate just some of the means by which prejudice and violence may serve to reinforce (or sometimes challenge) existing power differences between social groups.  My approach to research examines the relationship between prejudice and violence using perspectives from social psychology,  gender and sexuality studies, law-psych, and public health.
