Christopher Robertson is Associate Professor in the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, and a Research Associate with the Edmund J. Safra Center for Ethics Institutional Corruption Lab at Harvard University.  Relevant to civil discourse, Professor Robertson’s research has focused on the American jury, including whether jurors can self-diagnose their own biases and whether blinding expert witnesses to avoid biases will also make them more persuasive to jurors.  Robertson has empirical work in progress exploring whether deliberative processes may be valuable information proxies to individuals who do not participate therein, and exploring the cultural salience and political feasibility of organ transplantation reforms.  In collaboration with the Honors College, Robertson also directs the Law and Behavior Research Lab, and leads the undergraduate course called Race, Sex, and Power in the Supreme Court.
