Nilanjana Dasgupta, professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences and director of CNS faculty equity and inclusion, has won the 2016 Application of Personality and Social Psychology Award from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology. Dasgupta was recognized for her “groundbreaking research” that examines unconscious or implicit bias, with specific focus on the plasticity of implicit bias, for example, “the ways in which variations in social contexts cast imprints on the mind to influence the self-concept, attitudes, beliefs and behavior toward others.”
