Nour Kteily is an Associate Professor of Management and Organizations. His research uses the tools of social psychology to investigate how and why social hierarchy and power disparities between groups emerge, and how this influences intergroup relations and prospects for conflict resolution. He is particularly interested in investigating the psychological mechanisms, at both the individual and group levels, that predict support for challenging versus maintaining hierarchy in society. 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 and the Boston Marathon bombings. Professor Kteily's research has been published in leading journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, and Journal of Experimental Psychology:General. His work has also been featured in popular press outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Boston Globe.
In recognition of his research, Kteily has received the SAGE Young Scholar Award from the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology, and the Rising Star designation from the Association for Psychological Science. He also received the Gordon Allport Prize in Intergroup Relations from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues and the Roberta Sigel Early Career Scholar Paper Award from the International Society of Political Psychology. In recognition of his teaching, Kteily was voted as Faculty Member of the Year by the Kellogg Masters in Management Studies graduating classes of 2016 and 2017. In 2018, Kteily was named as one of the best 40 business school professors under 40 years of age by Poets & Quants.
