Alex Russell
Graduate Student, Social Psychology, Stanford University

Alexandra Russell is a PhD candidate in Social Psychology at Stanford University. Her research focuses on two lines of inquiry: how beliefs about the fluidity of societal gender roles underlie the ideals and expectations men and women have for themselves and others, and how perceptions of well-being impact important behaviors and outcomes relevant to mental health and wellness. She investigates these questions via laboratory and online experiments, structured interviews, and longitudinal survey methodologies. Broadly speaking, Alexandra is interested in exploring how seemingly simple differences in beliefs about the malleability or fluidity of a construct can lead to large and important differences in outcome.
