Dr. Jessica Remedios is an Associate Professor of Psychology and
Director of the Social Identity and Stigma Lab (SISL) at Tufts
University. She received her Ph.D. in experimental social psychology
from the University of Toronto in 2012. Dr. Remedios' research aims to
understand the impact of stereotypes on stigmatized group members under
conditions of complexity. As such, she focuses on how people with more
than one stigmatized group membership are perceived and how these
individuals cope with the multiple forms of prejudice they face.
In one line of work, Dr. Remedios explores how stigmatized people are
perceived by others. She is interested in how one identity (e.g.,
gender) may affect how perceivers process information and use
stereotypes about another identity (e.g., race) during person
perception. Dr. Remedios also examines how individuals who have multiple
stigmatized identities cope with facing more than one form of
discrimination. Specifically, she aims to understand how having multiple
stigmatized identities affects psychological and behavioral outcomes in
targets. In both lines of work, Dr. Remedios uses social-cognitive
methods to assess controlled and automatic attitudes that people hold
about themselves and others.
Dr. Remedios teaches Introduction to Psychology (PSY 1), Introduction to
Social Psychology (PSY 13), Social Identity, Stigma and Coping (PSY
115/215), as well as graduate-level classes in Social Psychology.
