Muna Adem is a doctoral candidate in Sociology at Indiana University, where she also completed a Master’s degree in Applied Statistics. Her research lies at the intersection of race, ethnicity, and immigration. Her overarching agenda is motivated by two questions: How does ethno-racial demographic change influence race relations, group divisions and social cohesion in the U.S. and Europe? And how do immigration policies and advocacy organizations promote or constrain cooperation between ethno-racial groups? To answer these questions, she relies on quantitative and experimental methods as well as a range of research designs while exploiting novel sources of data.
Muna’s work has been published in Social Psychology Quarterly, Emerging Adulthood and other peer-reviewed journals. Her work has also been supported by the International Chapter of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, the Center for Research on Race & Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University, the Graduate and Professional Student Government Research Award and the Sociology department at Indiana University.
