Jessica Good, PhD is an L. Richarsdon King Assistant Professor of Psychology at Davidson College. She earned her doctorate in 2011 from Rutgers University. Her research focuses on social identities and self-evaluations in addition to experiences and perceptions of discrimination and justice. She is interested in exploring how social identities can motivate stereotype-consistent behavior, and how those behaviors affect beliefs about the self. She is also interested in how targets of discrimination (particularly benevolent forms of discrimination) are perceived by others with regard to their competence and job capability. 

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
