Angie N. Ocampo is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology. Angie’s dissertation focuses on the incorporation of Latinos, examining how they view the racial hierarchy, as well as how native-born Americans shape the process of social acceptance for Latinos. Her dissertation uses a novel survey experiment and other measures of acceptance to examine which boundaries are salient in shaping how Latinos are viewed by others. This research has been supported by the GAPSA-Provost Fellowship for Interdisciplinary Innovation, the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race and Immigration’s Turner-Schulman Graduate Fellowship, the School of Arts and Sciences' Dissertation Research Fellowship, and the department of sociology's Gertrude and Otto Pollak Summer Research Fellowship. 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. She received her bachelor's degree, magna cum laude, in Sociology and Ethnic Studies from Brown University in 2015.
