My main research interest concerns the study of stereotyping and prejudice and how these phenomena and social attitudes in general can be explained by different psychological approaches. I am mainly interested in personality and social psychological explanations of prejudice, and particularly models that combine such explanations. The research is based on correlational as well as experimental studies.
