Some of Dr. Bishop’s research interests involve stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination with particular (but not exclusive) emphasis on sexual and gender diverse individuals. One point of focus involves the identification/development of novel research methods to better identify such negative attitudes and behaviour that are commonly occluded due to floor effects of commonly used scales. Dr. Bishop is also interested in psychometrics (e.g., the psychometric properties of scales designed to measure stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination) and topics pertaining to human sexuality (e.g., interpersonal relationships, sex work, and pornography).
