As a social psychologist, Gabrielle Filip-Crawford’s work explores the ways in which we navigate our social world. How do we decide who to sit next to on the bus, trust to watch our children, or allow to borrow money? The ways in which we distinguish friend from foe or opportunity from threat shape how we perceive and act toward others. Gabrielle is especially interested in how these processes play out in various groups, including lesbians and gay men and people with mental illness. Her work also explores the concealability and visibility of sexual orientation, and the implications of this for both person perception processes and LGBT physical and mental health.
Gabrielle received her Ph.D. and M.A. in social psychology from Arizona State University and her B.A. in psychology from Mills College.
