Biography:

Hyun Joon Park is a second year graduate student in social psychology at The Pennsylvania State University. Hyun Joon is interested in questions related to how stigmatized group members are influenced by stereotypes that they face. Broadly, Hyun Joon's research focuses on 1) how belonging to a certain group (e.g. based on social status, gender, and race) leads group members to experience stigma; 2) how perceptions of stigmatization towards one's group influences psychological well-being and how individuals come to self-perceptions; 3) how to reduce the impact that stigma has upon group members; and 4) whether individuals who belong to different cultures differentially perceive and cope with stereotype threat. Hyun Joon graduated from Korea University in 2016 with a double major in psychology and economics.
