Dr. Mazzocco is generally focused on the factors that give rise to racial colorblindness. In his current work, he is examining the link between perceptions of ongoing racial disparities and support for racial colorblindness. He hypothesizes that people who believe that racial disparities are minimal will be more likely to support racial colorblindness than those who believe disparities are extreme. Dr. Mazzocco typically has two to three undergraduate students working in his lab (as Psych 4998 students). In addition, he has advised two students on honors theses. Finally, one of his recent journal publications included two undergraduate student coauthors.
