Jennifer Eberhardt is Morris M. Doyle Centennial Professor of Public Policy, William R. Kimball Professor at the Graduate School of Business, Professor of Psychology and by courtesy, of Law, and Co-Director of SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real-World Questions) at Stanford University. She earned her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1993. Jennifer Eberhardt investigates the consequences of the psychological association between race and crime. Through interdisciplinary collaborations and a wide-ranging array of methods—from laboratory studies to novel field experiments—Dr. Eberhardt has revealed the startling, and often dispiriting, extent to which racial imagery and judgments suffuse our culture and society, and in particular shape actions and outcomes within the domain of criminal justice. For example, her work on looking “deathworthy” shows that Black defendants with more stereotypically Black faces are more than twice as likely to be on death row as other Black defendants, controlling for facial attractiveness and relevant features of the crime. She is the author of Biased: Uncovering the hidden prejudice that shapes what we see, think, and do (2020). Jennifer Eberhardt was elected a member of the American Philosophical Society in 2023.
