(Fall 2007)

Research interests:

We investigate how people change their definitions of fairness and their reactions to disadvantage or conflict when they identify themselves as members of different groups.  For example, an individual’s willingness to accept an ingroup authority’s decision increases if the individual perceives the decision-maker as treating them fairly, but an individual’s willingness to accept an outgroup authority’s decision increases if they receive favorable outcomes. A list of current research projects is available at: http://www.sonoma.edu/users/s/smithh/lab/pages/labproj.html.

If you would like to read more about my background, you can read my "FRESCA" profile.

We still need volunteers for two research projects begun in Spring 2013.
