Professor William Arsenio received his doctorate in Child Development from Stanford University, and he was a post-doctoral fellow at U.C. Berkeley. He is an APA Fellow and serves on the editorial board of several journals, including Merrill-Palmer Quarterly and Early Education & Development. He was an associate editor for Merrill-Palmer and is currently a consulting editor for Child Development.

Professor Arsenio is interested in how children's and adolescents' affective tendencies and abilities influence their social competence, moral development, and aggression. More recently, he and his students have focused on adolescents' and adults' judgments and emotions regarding the fairness of broad social institutions and how those conceptions relate to interpersonal morality and behavior.
