Erika Kirgios

I am an Assistant Professor in the Behavioral Science department at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a co-PI of the HOPE Lab


My research interests include diversity, discrimination, prosocial behavior, and behavior change. The majority of my work focuses on race and gender in the workplace, aiming to elucidate why inequality persists and to identify theoretically-grounded interventions that can improve outcomes for women and racial minorities. My work has been published in journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nature Human Behaviour, Nature, Management ScienceOrganization Science, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.


I received my Ph.D. in Operations, Information, and Decisions from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and I graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University with a BA in Computer Science and minors in Cognitive Science and Neuroscience. You can click here to view my CV.
