Dr. Case is a social psychologist by training and applies critical race theory, feminist theory, queer theory, and intersectional theory to her teaching, research, and service to the profession, on campus, and in the surrounding community. Her mixed-methods research examines ally behavior when encountering bias and interventions to increase understanding of intersectionality and systemic privilege, reduce prejudice, and create inclusive spaces within educational and community settings. Her pedagogical scholarship addresses diversity-course effectiveness, inclusive classroom practices, and teaching for social justice. Her first book, Deconstructing Privilege: Teaching and Learning as Allies in the Classroom (2013), focuses on pedagogical strategies for teaching about privilege through an intersectional lens. Her second book, now in print, emphasizes intersectionality pedagogy across the curriculum: Intersectional Pedagogy: Complicating Identity and Social Justice (2017).

In 2017, the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI APA Division 9) named Dr. Case as Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring Awardee. She was also named the 2013 Innovative Teaching Award winner for her student project on public education and intersecting social identities. The project also earned the 2012 Social Psychology Network Action Teaching Award – Honorable Mention. In recognition of her teaching, Dr. Case was also awarded the University of Houston-Clear Lake Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award, the Alumni Association’s Outstanding Professor Award, and Minnie Stevens Piper Teaching Award.

As both Fellow of the American Psychological Association and Fellow of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), has served as Council member, Executive Council Member, Journal of Social Issues Editorial Board member, Convention Program Chair, Teaching and Mentoring Chair, Early Career Scholar Chair., and Program Chair for the 2008 and 2014 Conventions. She currently serves in her second term on the American Psychological Association Council of Representatives (APA COR) and the Council Diversity Work Group.
