Graduate Student, Social Psychology

Gina Roussos is a third-year graduate student in Social Psychology. She is broadly interested in how prejudiced attitudes and beliefs originate, are perpetuated, and can ultimately be changed. She is particularly interested in using her research to inform changes in public policy. Her current project investigates the use of a perspective-taking computer game in increasing support of government-funded anti-poverty policies. 

Gina received her B.S. in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.

He received his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College.
