Kevin Binning

Kevin Binning is a social psychologist whose research focuses on answering the (seemingly) simple question: Why people do the things that they do? Using formal methods of inquiry such as experimentation and longitudinal observation, he explores how identity influences people’s learning and behavior over time. He develops and tests social psychology interventions that “nudge” people towards more socially constructive behavior in domains such as education, politics, and health.

What is STEM identity? | Kevin Binning

Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh

"If I have a part of myself where I view myself as a scientific person, as somebody who excels and succeeds in science, and that it's important for me to do so — that's kind of how I would view somebody as having a strong science identity."
