Dr. Sheila Brownlow


A social psychologist, Dr. Brownlow maintains an active program of research, focusing on implicit biases, mediators in sex differences in spatial skills, and implicit egotism.  Her research with students is an extension of the classroom, and she has over 30 scholarly publications in peer-reviewed journals with students as co-authors. She also guides students in presenting their work at professional conferences; she and her students have presented over 80 research studies at the annual meeting of the Southeastern Psychological Association. 

Outside of the classroom and lab, she enjoys travel, reading, and working on various historic restoration projects in Salisbury.
