Dr. Sabates' research interests are broadly related to social perception with regard to both individuals and inter-group relations. She is interested in how religious (Christian) groups distinguish themselves in academia with regard to undergraduate psychology curriculum. Her current research focuses on the possible connections between hyper-masculinity bias and endorsement of extremist ideology and how evangelical churches maintain positive multi-faith engagement in their communities. She is also interested in Christian views of the human condition as they relate to social psychology research, and has published a book on this topic.
