Nicky Sullivan

Doctoral Student, Psychology

I am a PhD student in the Department of Psychology. I grew up in a small town in rural New Hampshire before coming to Stanford for undergrad. This change from a mostly homogenous environment to an extremely diverse one sparked my interest in how children learn about social categories like race and gender. My research in graduate school will focus on this topic, as well as broader questions about how children and adults understand power and hierarchy. After two years working at UC San Diego, I’m excited to be back on the Farm for grad school.
