I’m a Ph.D. candidate in social psychology at Northwestern University researching the role that social forces can play in reducing pervasive inequities. My research primarily focuses on how schools can better support people from groups that have been marginalized by systemic inequities—including people from lower-socioeconomic status backgrounds—through recognizing and valuing the unique strengths that they often bring to their education and society.
