I am a member of the American Psychological Association. I also belong to Division 8 of APA (Personality and Social Psychology) and am a member of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology. To learn more about social psychology, link to the Social Psychology Network. I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology at a small liberal arts college in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, Bard College, and my master's degree and PhD in social psychology from the University of Delaware in Newark, DE.
I am the faculty advisor for Sigma Kappa sorority.
I am currently working with Josephine Wilson on an introductory statistics textbook for Prentice Hall. During my sabbatical in the fall semesters of 2004 and 2005, I worked on research in collaborative technology with colleagues at Pennsylvania State University and conducted research in social perception and racial stereotyping. Supported by Wittenberg's Freeman Grant, Josephine Wilson, Mary Jo Zembar and I traveled to Japan in July 2005 and I subsequently updated the cross-cultural components of my social psychology courses. During past sabbaticals, I have worked at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. More specifically, I supported research within the Human Effectiveness Directorate for the Crew System (now Warfighter) Interface Division. I supported their research in the Collaborative Systems Technology Laboratory and provided support for their Student Practicum and Internship Program. Several years ago, I also worked with Jim Noyes and other science faculty on the Computational Science Models Project (see Psychology and Human Factors) and developed the Social Values Model and Fitts' Time Movement Model.

My primary research areas within social psychology include: (1) social decision-making (negotiation, bargaining, experimental games), (2) verbal and nonverbal behavior as indicators of social power, (3) social perception and biases in attribution, and (4) subtle racism. In addition to my primary work in social psychology, I have also developed expertise in the areas human factors, cognitive engineering, applied task analysis, ethnographic research techniques, and computer-supported cooperative work, based on over twenty years of multi-disciplinary collaborative research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
