Research Interest

My research focuses on applying attribution theory to intergroup processes as well as to apologies and forgiveness.  I am very interested in how the experiences of social class and status systematically influence the way people of different status perceive and respond to situations. My apologies research focuses on understanding how apologies convey attributions of behavioral stability and influence forgiveness.
