About

I am a Ph.D. student in social psychology at the University of Washington where I am part of the Culture, Diversity, and Health Lab, directed by Dr. Cynthia Levine. I am broadly interested in how race and culture influence the way we respond to demographic shifts both locally (e.g., gentrification) and nationally (e.g., immigration).

Prior to graduate school, I was a lab manager at Stanford SPARQ, a social science "do tank" that bridges research and practice to address racial disparities. I earned my B.A. in 2018 from Pomona College where I studied psychology and Asian American studies.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy dancing and choreographing, trying new recipes, and learning more about local politics. I am also a public transit enthusiast.

I'm always open to chat about research collaborations, mentoring, or anything in between! You can reach me at rachsong@uw.edu.
