Cintia Hinojosa University of Chicago

PhD Student, Behavioral Science

My name is Cintia Hinojosa and I am a PhD student in Behavioral Science at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I earned my BA in Psychology with honors from The University of Texas at Austin and approach behavioral science from a social psychological perspective. I am interested in research that addresses the psychological and environmental forces that perpetuate socioeconomic inequality across race, gender, and class lines. By taking a qualitative approach to understanding the context of current societal problems, I aim to develop user-centered, randomized field experiments that can provide evidence for public policy solutions. My specific areas of interest include identity formation, value-oriented motivation, prosocial behavior, and youth empowerment. My research is heavily influenced by Kurt Lewin's study of group dynamics and use of participatory action research to solve social problems. I also take inspiration from critical race theory, intersectional feminism, and other scholars working for social, economic, and civic justice for marginalized groups.
