Antonya Gonzalez, PhD

she/her, Associate Professor


My research examines the cognitive biases and cultural influences that contribute to the development of intergroup bias and beliefs about inequality. I also investigate the consequences of these biases and beliefs for behavior in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, and potential interventions for bias and belief change.
