Dr. Teri Kirby has been a Lecturer (“Assistant Professor”) in Social Psychology at the University of Exeter since September 2015 and a Senior Lecturer since 2018. Before that, she completed her Ph.D. and M.S. at the University of Washington in Seattle. She completed her undergraduate degree (B.A.) at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008.
Dr. Kirby’s research interests lie in the realm of diversity, self and identity, intergroup relations, and discrimination. Her primary research questions examine how attempts to increase diversity shape the experience of groups that have been historically underrepresented. Which approaches to diversity management are most beneficial? How do these approaches affect ethnic minorities’ and women’s sense of self and identity? She looks at these questions in academic and organisational contexts using multiple measurement approaches.
At the University of Exeter, Dr. Kirby supervises undergraduate and MSc dissertation projects, along with teaching PSY3416 Work and Organizational Psychology and PSYM204 Advances & Methods in Social & Organisational Psychology.
