Kristjen Lundberg's Lab

Lab Description

Using a variety of methods, including behavioral experiments, quantitative methods, and community-based learning, students in the Lundberg Lab explore the answers to questions such as: How do social group-based disparities relate to our social thoughts, feelings, and behaviors? Why do people sometimes act in prejudiced ways even when they intend to be fair? And, most critically, how and why do status-related disparities (i.e., inequalities) exist and persist? Our most recent projects have been focused particularly on implicit bias—automatic negative feelings toward members of a social group—and informed action—intentionally taking action to promote social justice.
