Broadly speaking, my research can be categorized into two different domains: social cognition and interprofessional issues and collaboration:

Social Cognition
  • Psychological determinants of prejudice
  • Linguistic style and social information processing
  • Political impression formation
  • Perceptions of civil liberty in response to health threats

Interprofessional Issues and Collaboration 

  • Faculty participation in interprofessional education
  • Professional attitudes and behaviors in healthcare students
  • Implementation of RtI
  • Use of evidence based dentistry among faculty
