Amanda Danielle Perez is a doctoral student in social psychology at UC Berkeley. Her research interests broadly revolve around intergroup dynamics, as she believes these topics to be highly relevant in the business domains of management, judgement, and decision-making. While pursuing her bachelor’s degree at UC Berkeley, Perez discovered her intellectual passion for rigorous methodology and statistics. This passion, paired with strong mentorship, propelled her to graduate with honors, and is now immersing herself in research and statistics, publishing, and working towards her goal of becoming a professor. Perez has sought extensive training and research opportunities to develop her research in stereotyping, cross-group relations, and statistics and methods.
