She is particularly interested in how humans reveal thoughts, decisions, feelings, and intentions through subtle nonverbal behaviors. She has been invited to share her research and teaching on power, influence, nonverbal communication, lie-detection, ethics and corruption, the biology of leadership, decision making and social networks at most major universities and she consults widely from Wall Street to Silicon Valley. 

She received the National Science Foundation’s CAREER award in Social Psychology in 2011 and the Hellman Faculty Fellowship in 2013. Professor Carney received her PhD in Social Psychology from Northeastern University in 2005 and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University until 2008.

There is no better locaton than Mykonos for a program on Diversity & Inclusion.  Mykonos has long been the symbol of diversity and inclusion, of tolerance and acceptance, free-thinking and open-mindedness.

Mykonos is, for the Mykoniots d’élection, an ‘affective’ community, capable of    keeping them together as a group while tolerating their idiosyncratic selves (Pola Bousiou 2008)

Mykonos lies opposite the sacred island of Delos, one of the sunniest places in the world.  It is believed that due to its immensity of sunshine, it is a place of high concentration of cosmic energy.  According to mythology, god Apollo was born on Delos and Mykonos took its name from the grandson of Apollo, “Mykonos”.

Ayios Yiannis, where our program will take place on Mykonos, is famous as it was the location for the movie “Shirley Valentine”.
