DEBORAH HALL, PH.D.
I am an Associate Professor of Social & Behavioral Sciences in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at Arizona State University. I received my B.A. in psychology from Claremont McKenna College and my Ph.D. in social psychology from Duke University.
I am interested in how social and group identities shape people’s thoughts, emotions, and behavior. At ASU, I work closely with students on research that sheds light on the multi-faceted nature of social and group identities. A unifying theme across my core research areas is that a more nuanced understanding of the social and group bases of identity can pave the way for positive change.
At ASU, I teach introductory psychology (PSY 101), social psychology (PSY 350), a graduate quantitative methods course that focuses on regression-based techniques (PSY 516), and a graduate seminar on intergroup relations (PSY 598), in addition to supervised research and thesis courses. My office is located in FAB S41B on the ASU West Campus. The Identity & Social Relations Lab is housed in FAB B15, Rooms A - C.
I am also the Faculty Director of the New College Statistics and Methods (SAM) Lab--a lab devoted to assisting students in statistics and research methods courses with assignments, research projects, and statistics consulting. The lab's resources include computing stations with a range of quantitative and qualitative research software (e.g., SPSS, SAS, Stata, nVivo, EQS, MPlus, LISREL, EQS, R) and a team of graduate-level consultants who staff the lab and assist students in person, over the phone, and though online tutoring/consulting sessions.
