Understanding and undermining
the broad reach of narrow thinking
The Cox Stereotyping and Bias Research (SABR) Lab’s work all serves the ultimate goal of understanding and reducing the injustice, human suffering, and disparities that arise from stereotyping, bias, and prejudice. A key theme throughout our work is understanding how stereotyping and biases are perpetuated via neural, cognitive, and cultural processes.
SABR Lab’s work also serves as a bridge between basic, fundamental science and translational, applied intervention work: we leverage advances in basic knowledge about stereotype perpetuation to develop, test, and refine evidence-based interventions to reduce bias.
