Bio: 

Angie N. Ocampo is a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology. She received her bachelor's degree, magna cum laude, in Sociology and Ethnic Studies from Brown University in 2015. Her research interests include Latino immigrant incorporation, racial attitudes, and racial/ethnic stratification. Angie’s dissertation focuses on the critical process of social acceptance as a mediator for immigrant incorporation, where native-born whites determine which immigrants (and their descendants) have access to becoming American. Angie’s other projects include examining the gendered nature of Latino immigrants’ social position in the United States, the racial attitudes of Latinos toward whites and blacks, and the return migration patterns of Mexican migrants over time.
