Philip R. Allen Professor of Psychology Ph.D. 2000, Harvard University Professor Richeson’s research examines multiple psychological phenomena related to cultural diversity. For instance, she examines how people experience racial and other forms of societal diversity, be it efforts to navigate one-on-one interracial interactions or the political consequences of the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of the United States. Much of Professor Richeson’s recent research considers how people reason about and respond to societal inequality and injustice. Further, Richeson and her students examine multiple consequences of managing the threats associated with being the target of discrimination. Through her teaching and research, Richeson hopes to contribute to a better understanding of intergroup relations, including how best to foster culturally diverse environments that are cohesive.
