I am Elif Ikizer, a Turkish social psychologist living in the U.S. Currently, I am a post-doctoral research associate at Yale University, Department of Psychology. I received my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Connecticut.

My research is on the link between stigma and culture. My approach to studying stigma is unique because I investigate stigma from a cross-cultural lens. In my first line of research, I focus on understanding the causes and consequences of stigma across cultures. In my second line of research, I focus on how social scientific work on alleviating the societal problems experienced by stigmatized individuals alters the way stigmatized individuals are perceived in the society.
