Biography

Deborah L. Hall is an Associate Professor in the School of Social & Behavioral Sciences in Arizona State University’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences. She earned her B.A. in psychology from Claremont McKenna College and her Ph.D. in social psychology from Duke University.

Dr. Hall's research sheds light on the multi-faceted nature of social and group identities. Her work explores the more specific questions of: (1) how identification with social groups shapes positive and negative reactions to others, (2) how aspects of social identity moderate psychological experience, and (3) how research on social and group identities can inform interventions that address a range of social problems. A central theme across her core research areas is that treating social identity as a simple one-dimensional construct misses the complex and sometimes counterintuitive effects that emerge from ideological, motivational, and emotional meanings of identity.

Additional information about current projects and upcoming opportunities in Dr. Hall’s lab--the Identity and Intergroup Relations Laboratory (IIRL)--can be found at dhallpsych.com. She is also the Faculty Director of the ASU Statistics and Methods (SAM) Lab: samlabasu.com.
