Kelly Pivik

Associate Professor & Director of Graduate Studies

My main area of research interest is social psychology. I am primarily interested in group dynamics and prejudice, specifically scale development for the measurement of racism. My other areas of interest include the application of social psychology to the understanding of historical events, the effect of social influence on perception, and social cognition.
