SCHOLARSHIP & RESEARCH

Broadly speaking, Sonia's research examines barriers to and methods for optimizing diversity. She is particularly interested in the experience and effects of prejudice and discrimination, and examines these phenomena across the lifespan, from childhood to old age. Some of her previous research projects have examined the development of stigma consciousness among children, behavioral and neural effects of stigma and stereotype threat on adults, and the consequences of stereotype threat on the cognitive performance of older adults. She is especially interested in applying knowledge gained through social psychological research to policy and real-world interventions.
