Nilanjana Dasgupta

Professor Dasgupta's work aims to shed light on unspoken assumptions about social groups, often called implicit stereotypes or biases, and the ways in which they impact people’s evaluations of, and actions toward, others. With her lab, she also examine how implicit biases influence people's self-perceptions, performance, and academic and career choices. They are particularly interested in the plasticity of implicit bias—the ways in which changes in social contexts change implicit attitudes, beliefs, and behavior.
