Dr Andrea Carnaghi is an associate professor in Social Psychology at the University of Trieste (Italy). His research interest and expertise concern the interplay between social cognition and language (e.g. how the way we speak shapes the manner in which we think), social cognition and neuroscience (e.g., reduced empathic responses at the brain level for sexually objectified women), and social cognition and inter-group relations (e.g., how social categorization and stereotypes affect self- and other-perception, and how stereotypes can be revised). He was awarded the Gordon Allport Prize (sponsored by the G.W.A. memorial fund of Harvard University).
