Sasha Kimel, Ph.D., is a Harvard College Fellow (equivalent to a visiting professor) at Harvard University. She received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from University of Michigan and her B.A. from the University of British Columbia. Her research draws on a variety of theoretical frameworks (e.g. public policy, communications, political science, sociology) and methodologies (e.g. experimental, field-based approaches, physiological measurement) to examine the psychological underpinnings of ethnic conflict and how these vary by culture. In her most recent work, she examines how the communication of theories that emphasize genetic explanations affects interethnic hostility. Sasha teaches a number of courses at Harvard, including Cultural Psychology, Psychology of the Political Left & Right and Psychology of Being Rich or Poor.
