(b) how racial, ethnic and sexual minorities’ experiences of feeling valued among fellow minority ingroup members shape their self-concept, experiences with discrimination, tendency to engage in collective action and mental health (with Yuen Huo)

(c) how individuals’ come to discern their status in different types of social groups (e.g., workgroups, student groups, racial/ethnic minority groups; with Yuen Huo and Heather Smith)

(d) how individuals’ experiences of feeling respected in groups affect their physiological stress responses (with Yuen Huo and Heather Smith)

(e) how members of different social groups react to changes in racial, ethnic and cultural diversity (with Yuen Huo, Felix Danbold, Wenwen Ni and Jesus Serrano Careaga).
