Faculty

Kenneth DeMarree

Dr. DeMarree received his Ph.D. in 2008 from Ohio State University under the supervision of Dr. Richard E. Petty.  His research interests are at the intersection of social cognition, attitudes and persuasion, and the self.  Dr. DeMarree's research has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Review, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology

Clyde Hendrick

Clyde Hendrick received his PhD in 1967 from the University of Missouri, Columbia, with a specialty in experimental social psychology and a strong minor in sociology. Over the years he has explored many areas of research. For the past quarter-century he has focused on the multidisciplinary area of close relationships in collaboration with Susan S. Hendrick. We have studied romantic love, sexual attitudes, and other related topics. Currently we are studying respect as an important but overlooked variable in close relationships specifically, and human relationships more generally.

Darcy Reich

Dr. Reich received her BA in psychology from Carroll College (1993), and her M.A. (1996) and Ph.D. (2000) in social psychology from the Ohio State University.  Her research has focused on how social judgments and interpersonal behaviors are influenced by motivation, expectations, and naïve theories, and on the automatic and controlled processes by which people correct their judgments and behaviors to overcome biases.  Her recent work examines the role of nonconscious mimicry in self-fulfilling prophecies.  Dr. Reich has published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and has reviewed grant proposals for the National Science Foundation
