Bertram Gawronski completed a M.A. in Philosophy in 1998 at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, and a Ph.D. in Psychology in 2001 at Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. From 2001 to 2002 Gawronski worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow with Fritz Strack at the University of Würzburg, Germany, and from 2002 to 2004 with Galen Bodenhausen at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.. In 2004, he accepted a position as Assistant Professor at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada, where he was awarded a Canada Research Chair in 2005. He was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2008 and to the rank of Full Professor in 2010.
Gawronski's research investigates the mental processes underlying social judgments and behavior, paying particular attention to the interaction of automatic and controlled processes. Gawronski's most influential work includes the Associative-Propositional Evaluation Model (APE Model; developed in collaboration with Galen Bodenhausen), a dual process theory that addresses the relation between explicit and implicit attitudes, and the Quadruple-Process Model (Quad-Model; developed in collaboration with Frederica Conrey, Jeffrey Sherman, Kurt Hugenberg, and Carla Groom), a mathematical model that allows researchers to quantify the impact of qualitatively distinct mental processes on implicit measures, such as the Implicit Association Test. In 2008, Gawronski's research received widespread attention in the popular media with a study that predicted future decisions of undecided voters by means of an Implicit Association Test (conducted in collaboration with Silvia Galdi and Luciano Arcuri at the University of Padova, Italy).
Honors and awards 
Gawronski is the recipient of the 2008 Charlotte-and-Karl-Bühler Prize from the German Psychological Society, the 2007 Early Career Award from the International Social Cognition Network, the 2006 Theoretical Innovation Prize from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, and the 2007 Early Researcher Award from the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation. In 2009, he was named Faculty Scholar by the University of Western Ontario in recognition of outstanding contributions in research, teaching, and service. From 2009 to 2011, he served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. In 2011, the Council of Canadian Academies identified Gawronski and Bodenhausen's 2006 Psychological Bulletin article on the Associative-Propositional Evaluation Model as one of the 1% most frequently cited psychology papers worldwide during the period of 2000-2008.
