Print Overview

Nour Kteily is an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations. His research uses the tools of social psychology to investigate the causes and consequences of power dynamics and social hierarchy on intergroup relations. He is particularly interested in investigating mechanisms at both the individual and structural levels that predict support for challenging versus upholding the hierarchical status quo. His work has frequently explored these issues in the context of real-world conflicts of great consequence, such as the conflict in the Middle East. Professor Kteily's research has been published in leading journals such as Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, Journal of Experimental and Social Psychology, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Professor Kteily received his B.Sc. with First Class Honors from McGill University, his PhD in social psychology from Harvard University, and received a Postdoctoral Award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in Canada.
