Alia Crum

Alia Crum is an assistant professor of psychology at Standford University. Below is a summary, provided by her, on her research and interests:

"My research focuses on how changes in subjective mindsets- the lenses through which information is perceived, organized, and interpreted- can alter objective reality through behavioral, psychological, and physiological mechanisms. My work is, in part, inspired by research on the placebo effect, a remarkable and consitent demonstration of the ability of the mindset to elicit healing properties in the body. I am interested in understanding how mindsets affect important outcomes outside the realm of medicine, in the domains of behavioral health and organizational behavior. More specifically, I aim to understand how mindsets can be consciously and deliberately changed through intervention to affect organizational and individual performance, physiological and psychological well-being, and interpersonal effectiveness."
