Graduate Teaching Assistant
B.A., SUNY College at Oneonta
My research interests include topics that fall under social psychology, such as stereotyping and stereotype threat. In the past I have researched gender stereotyping in relation to hostile and benevolent sexism. As an undergraduate with other students, I examined the degree to which college students endorse various gender stereotypes. Another piece of the research also included examining the extent to which men and women endorsed either positive or negative stereotypes of their own gender and the opposite gender, thus investigating their endorsement of hostile or benevolent sexism.
My current research interest for my master's thesis is relevant to social media and technology and its influence on those receiving an education, particularly in a college setting. I am currently looking into how the use of Facebook influences a parent-child relationship while the child is receiving a college education and college experience.
