Research/Career Interests: 

Dr. Bogart is Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Disability and Social Interaction Lab at Oregon State University. She is a social/health psychologist specializing in ableism and facial paralysis. She has received grants from the National Institutes of Health, Good Samaritan Hospital (Erkkila Endowment), and the Moebius Syndrome Foundation. She also serves as Consulting Editor for the American Psychological Association journal Rehabilitation Psychology. In 2016, Dr. Bogart was named "Professor of the Term" by the Panhellenic Executive Council of OSU.

Her research focuses on the forgotten “ism,” ableism, or prejudice towards disability. She studies disability from a social psychological perspective, examining others’ attitudes toward disability and the way people with disabilities adapt to their conditions, develop identities, and manage stigma. 

Much of her work focuses on the psychosocial implications of facial movement disorders such as facial paralysis and Parkinson’s disease, which affect more than 200,000 Americans per year.  One of the most significant consequences of facial paralysis is a face that is inexpressive of one's emotions and unresponsive during social interaction. Half a century’s worth of psychological research suggests that certain basic facial expressions are universally communicated across all cultures. This leaves people with facial paralysis unable to participate in one of the only universal languages. Her research program is threefold: she examines how people with facial movement disorders adapt to their conditions, the way that other people interpret their behavior, and ways to facilitate effective and positive interaction between people with and without facial movement disorders.
