Todd Pittinsky's research investigates the well-known problems and underestimated potential of diverse communities, with a central focus on positive intergroup relations. This under-studied reality is the common element in his recent work on (a) the educational consequences, in quantitative domains, of positive stereotypes about ethnic minorities, (b) a theory of allophilia in diverse collectives (the Two-Dimensional Model of Intergroup Attitudes), and (c) leadership that bring groups together to reach common goals (intergroup leadership). In all this work, he models intergroup relations in their ecosystems of society, technology, and policy. Pittinsky earned a A.B. in psychology from Yale University, an M.A. in psychology from Harvard, and a Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Harvard Business School.
