aboutus

Welcome to Pietri’s Social Intervention and Attitudes (PSIA) lab (directed by Dr. Eva Pietri). The PSIA lab is located at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in downtown Indianapolis. 

 

An overarching goal of the PSIA lab is to investigate how basic processes in social cognition and attitudes influence a variety of domains that are pertinent to real-world issues. The lab aims to use theories and research from social psychology to guide the development of interventions. Much of our current research focuses on reducing biases and promoting diversity in science technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
