My research is an intersection of intergroup and interpersonal relations theory. I am interested in the process of cross-group friendship development; I seek to clarify the roles that intimate processes (such as closeness, trust and self-disclosure) may play in the formation of one's attitude about members of differing social groups ("outroups"). I would like to discover what makes people go beyond general tolerance for outgroups, and encourages them to develop a deeper level of compassion for others, motivating them to actively assist outgroup members.
