Personal Information

Ph.D., 1988, University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign

Research Interests:
My research addresses both basic and applied issues that are relevant to social psychology. My basic research interests include attitudes, persuasion, social cognition, affect and cognition, metaphor and cognition, nonverbal behavior, stereotyping, and prejudice, My applied research interests include political psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and consumer psychology. In exploring these issues, I have adopted an information processing approach that incorporates the role of affect and nonverbal cues (e.g., a candidate's facial expression) into an overall model of social judgment and decision making (Iyengar & Ottati, 1994; Ottati & Wyer, 1990, 1993; Wyer & Ottati, 1993). My past work can be divided into five programs of research. These concern (1) processing style in political attitude formation tasks, (2) the unique role of episodic affect as a determinant of political attitudes, (3) the distinction between corrected and uncorrected social judgments, (4) cross-cultural and basic research concerning stereotypes and perceived group variability, and (5) cross-cultural research on subjective culture. My more recent work addresses a variety of concerns. These include the role of metaphor in mass communication and persuasion, the effects of stereotype suppression in a political impression formation task, and subliminal measurement of object evaluation.

Teaching Experience:

Graduate: Social psychology, social cognition, attitudes and attitude change, political psychology, consumer psychology, mass communication, judgment & decision making.

Undergraduate: Introductory psychology, social psychology, advanced social psychology, personality, experimental psychology, consumer psychology, mass media, voting behavior.
