Sara Burke

I am an assistant professor in social psychology at Syracuse University. I study intergroup bias—stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, and experiences of stigma. Specifically, my research focuses on variations in the way bias operates when it targets different groups, and one of my central goals is expanding the scientific knowledge base to better account for underexamined targets. For example, some of my 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 describes my research interests and empirical findings in more detail.

I regularly seek opportunities to learn and teach statistics, both formally and informally. The Statistics section of this website contains a collection of miscellaneous examples and explanations I have found useful in teaching.
