Identity | Kevin Binning

Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh

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.

In this five-minute video, Kevin shares his perspective on defining and studying STEM identity. The interview was 40 minutes in totalread all of Kevin's responses in the full transcript.
