Dr. Jason Deska is a Chair’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto where he works with Dr. Nick Rule. Prior to joining the University of Toronto, he received his Ph.D. from Miami University under the supervision of Dr. Kurt Hugenberg and his B.A. from the University of Notre Dame.

In his research program, Jason investigates how differential judgment and treatment manifest both between groups (e.g., social categories) as well as within groups (e.g., facial appearance). Motivating this work is a desire to both advance scientific theory and meaningfully impact social justice.
