Dr. Kay's research focuses on the relation between motivation, implicit social cognition, and social issues including criminal justice. He has a particular interest in how basic motivations and needs manifest as specific social and societal beliefs. These include: justice systems, the causes and consequences of stereotyping and system justification, religious belief, political ideology, and the attitudes people hold towards their organizations and institutions.
