I’m a Social Psychologist and specialize in how people perceive and think about other people and the common errors people make when thinking about people.  My specific research interests involve the stigma of mental illness and how people think about blame and responsibility in sexual assault situations. I also have training in Community Psychology and worked for about 10 years outside of academia in community development, namely leadership development and community organizing. I also have interests in fringe areas of Psychology.  I’ve published articles and letters about Jungian Archetypes and anomalous phenomena (e.g. ESP).
