Arnold Kelly Ho
Arnold Ho is an assistant professor of psychology and of organizational studies at the University of Michigan. He is interested in the interplay of individual and societal level factors in the production of group-based social inequality. In particular, much of his current research explores how individual differences in prejudice and anti-egalitarianism interact with perceived threats to the hierarchical status quo to drive behaviors aimed at maintaining inequality. Ho’s research has been published in top academic journals, including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Journal of Personality, and Psychological Science, and has been covered by numerous news outlets, including the Agence France-Presse (AFP), Boston Globe, Psychology Today, and Time. Ho received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Harvard University in 2011.
