Greg Walton

Department Affiliation:
Assistant Professor, Stanford Psychology Department

Current Research:
His research examines the nature of self and identity, often in the context of academic motivation and achievement. I’m interested in social factors relevant to motivation, in stereotypes and group differences in school achievement, and in social-psychological interventions that address important social problems.
