About

Erik Santoro is a PhD student in Social Psychology. He studies how conversations can be a way to bridge divides. For instance, Erik has investigated the relationship between how men listen and women’s sense of power and respect. His work through the Center for American Democracy at IRiSS explores how to make conversations between out-partisans more effective (e.g., by encouraging active listening) in order to reduce partisan animus.
