Eric Hehman is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Ryerson University and director of the Seeing Human Lab.

Generally, Dr. Hehman’s research examines how individuals perceive and evaluate one another across group boundaries (e.g., race, gender, sexual-orientation, occupation, etc). To address these questions, he takes a multi-method approach, incorporating a broad range of behavioral (e.g., computer-mouse tracking, digital face modeling, group interactions), neural (e.g., fMRI, EEG), and statistical techniques (e.g., multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling).

He received his Ph.D. from the University of Delaware working with Sam Gaertner, and worked as a post-doctoral scholar with Jon Freeman at Dartmouth College and New York University.
