Rodolfo Mendoza-Denton is an associate professor of psychology at the University
of California, Berkeley, and faculty director of the University's Greater Good Science
Center. Childhood experiences living in Mexico, the U.S., Ivory Coast, and Thailand
cemented an early interest in cultural differences and intergroup relations. He received
his BA from Yale University and his PhD from Columbia University. Mendoza-Denton’s
professional work covers stereotyping and prejudice from the perspective of both
target and perceiver, intergroup relations, as well as how these processes influence
educational outcomes. He is a co-editor of the anthology Are We Born Racist? from
Beacon Press and writes a blog by the same name for Psychology Today.
