Research Interests

My primary research interests focus on the intersection of social psychology and psychology and law. Specifically, I am interested in how extralegal factors affect how individuals are perceived in the legal system. My research primarily investigates how lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals are perceived as both perpetrators and victims of crimes. I received my masters of science at Arizona State University in general psychology and am now pursuing my Ph.D. in social psychology here at the University of Kentucky.
