Cydney H. Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, has been named a Rising Star by the Association for Psychological Science (APS). The designation recognizes “outstanding APS members in the earliest stages of their research career post-PhD... whose innovative work has already advanced the field and signals great potential for their continued contributions.”
Dupree’s research interests broadly address how to reduce divisions between social groups and increase the inclusion of under-represented minorities within and across organizations. She uses surveys, experiments, and archival work to delve into the strategies used by social groups in seeking to meet their interpersonal affiliative and hierarchical goals, considering the implications of these strategies for reducing inequality and achieving successful interracial interactions.
Dupree was a recipient of a National Science Foundation Graduate Student Fellowship, and she was a member of Princeton University’s Joint Degree Program in the Study of Inequality. Her work has appeared in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and Perspectives in Psychological Science.
