Kimberly B. Rogers

Academic Appointments

Assistant Professor of Sociology
Quantitative Social Science Program Affiliate

Kimberly's research examines how inequalities are produced, maintained, and resisted through behavior and emotion dynamics in social interactions. Her publications evaluate the degree of consensus in identity sentiments and impression formation processes within and between cultures, examine behavioral and emotional responses to stereotyped groups and unfair reward distributions, and reveal the implications of micro-social processes for status and power hierarchies, occupational inequality, victimization, and mental health outcomes.
