Honoring scientists who have made important and lasting contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior
Hazel Rose Markus is a social psychologist and cultural scientist recognized for her research on how cultures shape selves and on the role of selves in regulating behavior. Her work examines how nation, region, gender, social class, race, ethnicity, religion, and occupation influence thought, feeling, and action. Recent research focuses on sociocultural variation in agency and on interventions that can foster agency and remove barriers to agency.
She is the Davis-Brack Professor in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, co-director of SPARQ: Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions, and the former director of the Research Institute for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. She received her B.A. from California State University at San Diego and her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.

Campbell award from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) for contributions to social psychology, and the APS William James Award for lifetime achievement for basic research. She is the former President of SPSP, and is a fellow of both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Sciences.
