Angela-MinhTu Nguyen, Ph. D

Associate Professor of Psychology

My overarching research interest is multiculturalism from an intersectionality perspective. My goal is to help marginalized individuals leverage their multiple identities for greater well-being, better interpersonal relations, and more academic and professional success. For example, I am investigating the role of race, culture, gender, and sexuality in Southeast Asian American first-generation college students’ higher education experiences. In conducting this research, I draw from the literatures on acculturation, bicultural identities, cultural frame-switching, and intercultural competence.
