Our Team

M. Thomas Head ShotLab Director, Maggie Thomas, PhD

I am an Associate Professor of Experimental Social Psychology and Faculty Director of EPIC Programs at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. I received my PhD in Social Psychology from The Pennsylvania State University, under advisor Dr. Theresa Vescio. My undergraduate degree in psychology is from Lawrence University (Appleton, WI), where I worked with advisor Dr. Peter Glick. I am passionate about teaching in a liberal arts environment and teach a wide variety of courses (e.g., Psychology of Food, Psychology of Prejudice, Human Sexuality, Social Psychology, etc.). For me, research is an extension of teaching, as it prepares students for educational and career opportunities after Earlham, as well as makes them better consumers of research.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Shana, cooking for Shana and friends, and sharing what I cook at my vegan blog, LesVegan Kitchen.
