Anthony G. Greenwald is a professor of psychology at the University of Washington. Over the past decade, he has developed new methods that have led to the discovery and documentation of unconscious and automatic processes in human cognition.
The revelations generated by one of his methods, the Implicit Association Test (IAT), brought him to the Radcliffe Institute to work with his longtime research collaborator Mahzarin Banaji, the Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor at the Radcliffe Institute and the Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics in Harvard’s psychology department. Greenwald will work with Banaji and with legal scholar and Radcliffe Institute fellow Linda Hamilton Krieger in a cluster project. The three scholars will analyze the pervasive phenomena of implicit prejudice and stereotypes that have been revealed by the IAT and will describe the implications for justice and law.
Greenwald received his bachelor’s degree from Yale University and his doctoral degree from Harvard University. He has published more than 140 scholarly articles and has served on editorial boards of major journals, including a period as editor of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Society of Experimental Psychologists and has received the Donald T. Campbell Award for research career contributions from the Society of Personality and Social Psychology. His research has been supported by a series of research grant awards from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Mental Health.
