Todd Hartman




I am a social scientist who studies people, from their individual thoughts, feelings, and behaviours to the ways in which they interact with others in society. I am most interested in exploring the nature and consequences of intergroup relations, particularly with respect to racial and ethnic prejudice. I am also interested in how individuals make sense of their surrounding world, process incoming information, and make complex decisions. Recently, I have become intrigued by the concept of empathy and its relationship to group dynamics and support for pro-social behaviours.

Methodologically, I am competent in a number of different quantitative methods including linear regression, structural equation modeling, analysis of complex surveys, experimental design and treatment effects, and Bayesian estimation.

Prior to joining the Sheffield Methods Institute, I was Assistant Professor of Political Science in the Department of Government and Justice Studies at Appalachian State University and Founding Director of Survey Research for the Center for Economic Research and Policy Analysis. I am a graduate of the University of California at Davis (B.A., International Relations), San Francisco State University (M.A., International Relations), and the State University of New York at Stony Brook (Ph.D., Political Psychology).
