Christine Looser

Christine Looser is a behavioral scientist who believes that we can answer fundamental questions about human nature with the scientific method.

She works on on questions like: How do we make and break social connections? When do we succeed (and fail) at understanding what other people care about? How does social technology change us? How does our brain distinguish objects from people? Why do we sometimes get it wrong and treat objects like people, or, treat people like objects? She uses her research background to teach students how behavioral science and social psychology can be leveraged for consumer engagement and brand growth.

She is a research affiliate at Harvard and an Associate Professor at Minerva, where she helped build the Business College and now works on partnerships in the Professional Learning space.
