Dr. Meyers' program of research examines how increasing diversity in society shapes intergroup processes across contexts and groups. Using a social-cognitive approach, she examines how contexts and social norms influence cognition, behaviors, and social interactions, with a focus on racial diversity, race-related norms, and social perception. Her research highlights the experiences of underrepresented racial groups in psychology and builds theories within intergroup relations that are inclusive of these growing populations. Dr. Meyers uses a wide variety of methodologies in this research, including but not limited to qualitative interviews, eye-tracking, mouse-tracking, implicit measures, longitudinal surveys, and self-report measures.
Dr. Meyers is interested in accepting new graduate students for Fall 2024.
