Leslie Zebrowitz (PhD, Yale University) is the Manuel Yellen Professor of Social Relations and Professor of Psychology emerita at Brandeis University. Trained as a social psychologist, she later received advanced training in social neuroscience. Her research focused primarily on face perception and age, race, and gender stereotypes, with an emphasis on how and why people's physical appearance influences impressions of their traits as well as their social outcomes and psychological development. Her research was for many years supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. She is devoting her retirement to using her early training to promote actions that address the threat of climate change
