IPC Research

We aim to understand the ways in which social factors interplay with perception, cognition, and behavior. Our broad research interests include the accuracy of spontaneous social judgments from "thin slices" (brief observations) of behavior, the cognitive and behavioral effects of stereotyping, nonverbal and verbal communication in real-life settings, and the role of social and structural group memberships in interpersonal relations. We examine these phenomena at multiple levels of analyses ranging from the neurological and physiological to sociocultural.
