Hi! I'm Kathryn ("Katie") Kroeper, currently a postdoctoral fellow at The Ohio State University. I earned my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Indiana University, Bloomington. In Fall 2022, I will be joining Sacred Heart University as an Assistant Professor of Psychology.
The central goal of my research is to identify and address social inequities between those traditionally advantaged and those traditionally disadvantaged in society. To this end, I use multiple methods (experiments, surveys, interviews, and audit studies) to examine social issues from a variety of perspectives (target, perceiver, and organizational).
*Want one of my papers, but you’re stuck behind a paywall? Contact me directly! I'm happy to share my work!
