Dr. Ramsey joined the Bridgewater State University psychology department in 2011. She teaches a variety of courses, including Introductory Psychology, Orientation to the Psychology Major, Research Methods, Social Psychology, and the Psychology of Women and Gender. Her research has focused on three primary areas: 1) stereotyping & prejudice, 2) objectification, and 3) the underrepresentation of women in math & science fields. For example, she has published papers examining implicit (unconscious) versus explicit (conscious) stereotypes, the consequences of objectification for romantic relationships, and how women who increasingly endorse the women-are-bad-at-math stereotype over the course of a semester perform worse in their math class. She particularly enjoys collaborating with students on research projects.
