Council Member 2018-2019 Grad Student Chair 

Angela Robinson is a Social Psychology PhD student at the University of California, Irvine. She received her MS in Cross-Cultural Psychology from Victoria University of Wellington and her BA in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Illinois.

This is Angela's fourth year on SPSSI's Graduate Student Committee (GSC). Before assuming her current role as GSC Chair, Angela served one-year terms as the Academic Focus Member-at-Large, Membership Coordinator, and Chair-Elect.

Angela's research interests center on understanding psychological responses to social inequality, particularly gender and economic inequality. Currently, her research focuses on (1) the factors that influence the degree to which individuals perceive inequality in their environments and (2) how such perceptions influence tolerance for inequality and responses to unequal conditions for different groups.


Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
