Short bio: 
 
Dr. Keon West is the director of Equalab, a team focused on the social psychology of equality, prejudice and intergroup relations. The aim of his research is to detect and reduce bias between different groups of people, as well as to investigate strategies to promote mental health and well-being among people belonging to minority groups. Much of his prior research specifically investigated the contact hypothesis and its derivatives (extended and imagined contact). Recently, he has developed a strong focus on gender identity, perceptions of sexuality and sexual orientation, sexism, and anti-LGBT prejudice. Dr. West has received numerous international awards for his research, teching, media engagement and social activism.
