Before coming to Yale, Katie Oltman received B.A.s in Psychology and English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Katie is primarily interested in the underlying assumptions individuals use to identify social groups, and the downstream consequences of these processes, such as stereotyping and discrimination. Specifically, Katie is interested in “entitativity,” the process where a collection of individuals comes to be identified as a single group. Her current work focuses on exploring which factors of a social environment predict entitativity, and how we can manipulate perceptions of entitativity to induce positive group attitudes.
