Sara E. Burke, Ph.D. 

Dr. Burke is an assistant professor in social psychology at Syracuse University. She studies intergroup bias—stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, and experiences of stigma. Specifically, her research focuses on variations in the way bias operates when it targets different groups, and one of her central goals is expanding the scientific knowledge base to better account for under examined targets. For example, some of her work addresses groups that are perceived as falling in between other groups, such as biracial people and bisexual people.  The research section of this website provides more information about some of the research conducted in the lab.
