Live at the University of Michigan-Dearborn!

As students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, we got to talk to four different professors about what they do and how their fields relate to each other. Here’s who all we talked to:

Dr. Marie Waung is an industrial-organizational psychologist. Her current research involves developing the capability of autonomous shuttles to interpret human behavior and the psychological effects of the employer-employee relationship in business.

Dr. Robert Hymes is a social personality psychologist. He studies the cognitive processes behind stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination on the individual level. 

Dr. Caleb Siefert is a clinical psychologist. His research focuses on personality traits and how they influence emotion, cognition, & functioning.

Dr. Paul Draus is a sociologist! He conducts his research in communities in and around Detroit to study power imbalances between social groups and seek social justice.

Also, Dr. Draus mentioned a fascinating study of racial discrimination in hiring practices. You can find the full article here.
