Curriculum Vitae: CV for Bradley Pan-Weisz


Pan-Weisz Social Psychological Research Lab


Broadly speaking, my research centers on understanding how stigma and societal stereotypes can contribute to academic and health disparities between advantaged and disadvantaged social groups. Specifically, I have two different, but related, lines of research. My first line of research focuses on understanding how stigma based on  intersecting social identities can harm students’ academic achievement, and how brief social-psychological interventions can be used to combat this underachievement. My second line of research focuses on understanding the mental and physical health consequences of possessing stigmatized identities that can be concealed or hidden from others (e.g., mental illness; low social class), and how people can effectively cope with this form of stigma (e.g., disclosure, social support).
