Maureen is a sixth year doctoral student in Social Psychology and a doctoral fellow at the American Bar Foundation. She completed her undergraduate work in psychology at Purdue University. Maureen is primarily interested in the interplay between social cognition and intergroup relations. Some research questions she's currently exploring include: What influences when members of stigmatized groups perceive other stigmatized groups as potential allies or as potential competitors? How do majority and minority group members perceive the "majority-minority" shift in the United States and what are the consequences for intergroup relations?
