Stylianos "Stelios" Syropoulos

Stylianos (Stelios) Syropoulos, Ph.D.

Stelios conducts research on how perceptions of past and future generations influence intergenerational, environmental and moral decision-making. Specifically, he is interested in what motivates individuals to engage in prosociality, even when that action comes at a personal cost. Other research interests include national identification (what gives rise to it and what its consequences are), personal safety (how does feeling (un)safe influence our lives), and how high-quality close relationships influence our physical and mental health.

Stelios has considerable expertise in quantitative methodologies, having worked as a methodology consultant for two years. He is skilled in and frequently employs multilevel/hierarchical linear modeling, longitudinal, dyadic (APIM) designs, and structural equation modeling.

Stelios received his B.A. in psychology from Franklin & Marshall College in 2018 and his Ph.D. in Social Psychology with a concentration in the Psychology of Peace and Violence from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in Fall 2022. At Boston College, he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Morality Lab, the Social Influence and Social Change (SISC) Lab, and the Schiller Institute for Integrated Science.
