Dr. Gabriel Camacho

Dr. Camacho is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He received his B.A. (2012) in Psychology from the University of Virginia and his M.S. (2016) and Ph.D. (2020) from the University of Connecticut. He joined John Jay in 2020. His most recent studies examine the ways in which stereotyping and prejudice adversely impact members of minoritized ethnic groups (e.g., the likelihood of being racially profiled by police) and the effectiveness of the prejudice-reduction strategies used by members of these groups (e.g., codeswitching).

Haniya Rumaney

Haniya's research interests primarily revolve around investigating the antecedents and consequences of religious and other identity-based stigma using social identity and intersectionality frameworks. In the past, she has conducted stigma and prejudice-focused research by employing survey experiments and natural language processing techniques. Her latest studies focus on how stigma drives endorsement of certain conspiracy theories. Prior to joining BASP, Haniya worked at the Sidanius Lab (Harvard University), and was a research assistant and program manager on a project funded by the International Growth Centre, UK. 

Bryant Gomez

Bryant's current research interests are racial-ethnic identity integration, sociocultural norms, stigma, well-being, and urban health disparities. Specifically, Bryant is interested in examining how people with stigmatized identities (e.g., BIPOC) perceive social support in comparison to those who are non-stigmatized and whether certain sociocultural norms (e.g., cultural values), in relation to their identity, influence certain psychosocial outcomes.
