Dr. Jackson’s research examines people’s attitudes and beliefs about social groups and social issues.

Her work also examines parallels between prejudice and human relations with the environment and non-human animals. An Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, she teaches Introduction to Psychology, The Psychology of Prejudice, and other courses related to applications of social psychology.
