Annalisa is a Basic and Applied Social Psychology PhD student at the Graduate Center. She studies race and alternatively, racism to critique further our understanding of identity and belonging. For instance, how do individuals understand their race in relation to the self and others (e.g., strangers, friends, and romantic partners)? Alternatively, how might confusion surrounding one’s race limit one’s ability to connect with others or contribute to intersectional in(visibility)? She does this using critical theories and experimental methods.
