Dr. Michael H. Pasek is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois Chicago. As a social psychologist, Michael studies intergroup relations, with a particular focus on the ways in which religion, as a both a group membership and a system of beliefs, affects moral decision-making, social attitudes, and behaviors in intergroup contexts. Michael also studies group relations along racial, political, and sexual orientation lines, with an emphasis on how social psychological theory can be leveraged to reduce conflict, advance social change, and promote equality.
