Bio/Research

Jennifer Kubota is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and The Center for the Study Of Race, Politics, and Culture (CSRPC) at The University of Chicago. Her research explores the social cognitive and neurocognitive processes involved in how we form impressions of others. In examining these basic mechanisms, she bridge social, cognitive, and neuroscience research with decision-making to advance psychological theories, to test the flexibility of impression formation, and to examine the constraints of interventions in producing lasting reductions in social group inequalities. To achieve these goals she utilizes a multi-level approach that includes investigations of hormonal determinants (e.g. cortisol), neural activations (e.g. EEG, fMRI), and behavioral outcomes and decision-making. She previously worked as a postdoctoral fellow at New York University and received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology and Neuroscience at The University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Kubota’s research has been supported by the National Institutes of Aging, the National Science Foundation, and the Ford Foundation.
