Professor Dana R. Carney is an Associate Professor at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and an affiliate of the Psychology Department. She was a Hellman Faculty Fellow from 2013-2014 and a Barbara and Gerson Bakar Faculty Fellow from 2014-2016. Prior to Berkeley she was an Assistant Professor of Management at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business. Carney is currently the Faculty Director for "Diversity and Inclusion for Organizational Success" and has served as Faculty Director for "Women in Technology" at UC Berkeley Executive Education.

Dana studies social behavior. She is particularly interested in the behavioral expression of prejudice, political affiliation and engagement, generosity, power, and status. Her work often dives deeply into the most micro aspects of social behavior—nonverbal behavior—and much of her work seeks to uncover what it is we actually *do* with our bodies and faces when we express prejudice, or status—for example.

She has been invited to share her research and teaching at academic conferences, universities, and companies all over the world. To Wall Street she often instructs on topics related to power, status, corruption, and deception. To Biotech, Pharma, and Tech she instructs on topics related to subtle forms of prejudice and discrimination, teamwork, culture, power and nonverbal communication. At the National Labs she instructs on teamwork, diversity, and social networks. She teaches undergraduates, MBAs, and PhD students at Haas and in the Psychology Department.

She has published over 40 research articles many of which are highly cited and visible in the media and in popular books. In 2011 she received the National Science Foundation’s CAREER award in Social Psychology and in 2010 the Rising Star award from the Association for Psychological Science. Dana received her PhD in Social Psychology from Northeastern University in 2005 and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University until 2008.
