    Research Interests

    Eftychia Stamkou's research aims at understanding how social hierarchies evolve. Her primary research interests revolve around leadership, power, influence, culture, norm violations, and moral emotions. In studying these topics, she looks at social- and cultural-psychological processes and effects, and examines their implications for individuals, organizations, and societies. She is also interested in understanding processes of influence in the field of art (artistic impact) with a special focus on artistic deviance.
