Advisor: Dr. Don Saucier

Description of Research

I am primarily interested in the prejudicial evaluations of sexual minorities and other associated social groups. I am currently examining prejudice toward people who live with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and factors that influence this prejudice, such as the PLWHA’s gender and sexual orientation. I am also examining perceptions of gender minorities (e.g., transgender individuals) and factors that affect these perceptions, such as heterosexism and anti-gay attitudes. My other area of research involves the relationship between masculine honor beliefs and aggressive responses to being romantically rejected. Additionally, I am interested in how both masculine honor beliefs influence political attitudes and perceptions of political candidates.
