My research interests lie in intragroup and intergroup processes and how media impart messages about group norms, with a special focus on gender. In addition, I am interested in media's potential on influence prejudicial attitudes and stereotyping directed towards other groups. To these ends, I study how different groups are represented in media and how audiences engage with and relate to characters. Some theories I draw on include intergroup contact theory, social identity theory, and social role theory.
