April H. Bailey is a fourth-year doctoral student. Her work broadly investigates how people rely on another's gender to make decisions about them. With a social cognitive focus, she studies the integration of gender and nonverbal behavior related to power during person perception. In this research she has used a variety of methods including: reaction time tasks, electroencephalogram, and recorded nonverbal behaviors. In another line of work, she investigates a subtle yet consequential form of gender bias called androcentrism whereby people think of men as representative of demographic-neutral categories. April collaborates primarily with professors Dr. Marianne LaFrance and Dr. Jack Dovidio. Alongside a PhD is Psychology she is pursuing a Certificate in Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies. She received her BA from Colgate University, majoring in both Psychology and Women’s Studies.
