Steven Neuberg is Foundation Professor of Psychology at Arizona State University. He integrates social-cognitive and evolutionary approaches in his research exploring the origins, nature, and nuances of prejudices and stereotypes, and the ways that fundamental motivations shape cognition and social behavior. He also founded the ASU Global Group Relations Project, a multidisciplinary and global study of factors, including religion, which shape intergroup conflict. Neuberg is a Fellow of multiple scientific societies and the recipient of several teaching awards, including ASU’s 2012 Outstanding Doctoral Mentor Award. Neuberg received his A.B. from Cornell University and an M.S. and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University.
