Christopher D. Petsko
I'm a Postdoctoral Associate at Duke University, where I hold appointments in both the Fuqua School of Business and the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity. Prior to arriving at Duke, I completed my doctorate in social psychology at Northwestern University, where I graduated in June of 2020.
At the most general level, my research examines how it is that stereotypes get inside our heads and influence our perceptions of each other. My sub-speciality, which you can read about under the "Research" tab, is on the topic of intersectional stereotyping. This research has received attention from the National Science Foundation on multiple occasions, and it has been published in mainstream social psychological outlets such as Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Social Psychological and Personality Science, and Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
Outside of psychology, I like learning about nutrition science, world history, and Spanish. (Anyone want to practice with me?)
Areas of expertise: intersectional stereotyping; prejudice; person perception; mixed-linear modeling
