TYLER G. OKIMOTO is an Associate Professor in Management in the business school at the University of Queensland, Australia. He received his Ph.D. in social and organizational psychology from New York University in 2005, and has worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Management at Yale University, and in the School of Psychology at Flinders University in Australia.

Dr. Okimoto’s research uses survey and experimental methods to tackle issues of social conflict in organisations, politics, and society more broadly, particularly how biases in organisational and moral decision-making contribute to discrimination, unethical practices, injustice, and conflict within and between groups. Notably, his work focuses on understanding both sides of the problem: (a) the causes of the diverse moral viewpoints that often incite conflict, and (b) the effectiveness of and willingness to use more compassionate, inclusive approaches to repairing harm and building moral consensus.
