Maria Abascal

Assistant Professor of Sociology, New York University

Research Initiative:

Abascal will explore different definitions of racial and ethnic diversity and examine how recent demographic changes affect Americans’ efforts at cooperation in their communities, including how Americans address conflict. Abascal’s research will use multiple methods and data sources, including survey and administrative data as well as an original experiment, to develop new tools that measure both diversity and its impacts.
