Paul G. Davies

After completing his Ph.D. in Social Psychology at the University of Waterloo, Paul Davies accepted a Postdoctoral Fellowship with Claude Steele at Stanford University. In 2003, he started as an Assistant Professor of Social Psychology at UCLA. Professor Davies then joined the psychology faculty at the University of British Columbia in 2007, where he serves as Professor of Psychology and Faculty Associate in the Faculty of Management.

Professor Davies has been named to the Teaching Honour Roll every year while at UBC, and in May 2012 was awarded the 2011/2012 University of British Columbia Award for Teaching Excellence and Innovation. The focus of his research is intergroup relations; specifically, stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. One program of research examines diverse forms of social identity threat, and a second examines how perceived stereotypicality can influence the levels of prejudice and discrimination that target stigmatized individuals. The majority of Professor Davies' research is applied to business and law enforcement contexts.
