About

Dr Mark Rubin is a social psychologist in the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle, Australia. The School is ranked in the top 4 of 41 Australian psychology departments in terms of its research (Excellence in Research Australia, 2012), and the University is ranked 1st and 2nd out of the Australian universities that have been established for 50 years or less (QS Top 50 Under 50, 2014; Times Higher Education Top 100 Under 50, 2015).

Mark’s research focuses on the social psychological processes that underpin social identity, stereotyping, prejudice, and social exclusion. He has authored 45 major research publications in this area, including 39 journal articles, 3 book chapters, and 3 published full conference papers. Over half of his journal articles are published in journals that are ranked in the top quartile of their field based on the SCImago Journal Rank indicator. His work has been cited over 2,500 times, and he is ranked in the top 20% of social psychologists based on his publication impact (career-stage e-index compared with 611 North American social psychologists; Nosek et al., 2010).

Mark’s work in the area of social identity includes several highly-cited articles that defend social identity theory against its critics and call for more sophisticated tests of its hypotheses. In the area of stereotyping, he has identified new processes that explain why people perceive members of social groups to be “all the same.” His work on prejudice has identified cognitive and motivational factors that predict bias against “category-inconsistent” people such as migrants and counterstereotypical individuals. Working with Stefania Paolini, he has also shown that negative intergroup contact is a more powerful predictor of out-group attitudes than positive intergroup contact. Finally, in the area of social exclusion, he has identified personality, motivational, and resource variables that predict social integration and exclusion, including migrant integration and the exclusion of working-class students from social life at university.
