Jonathan Kanter, PhD

I am a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and in the UW Psychology Department,  where I am Director of the Center for the Science of Social Connection.  I also am a member of the leadership team of the UW Medicine’s Office of Healthcare Equity, where I am Director of EDI Training and Education.  My research and training efforts focus on understanding and intervening on bias and microaggressions, improving EDI training and consultation efforts, and developing close relationships especially across the differences that typically divide us.

I use the pronouns he, him, his.
