Intergroup Relations, Culture, Self & Identity, Organizational Behavior, BelongingBiography:
My work broadly examines the experiences of underrepresented groups, including women in leadership and college students from low-socioeconomic status backgrounds. I focus on how social and environmental cues can affect identity and feelings of belonging, particularly when members of underrepresented groups are interacting with majority group members.
I graduated with undergraduate degrees in Business Administration and Mass Communications from UC Berkeley. Before beginning my graduate studies at UCLA, I worked in marketing at companies including Microsoft and PG&E and obtained a post-baccalaureate degree in Psychology from the University of Washington.
