About Me

Hello there! My name is Muna Adem and I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park.

My research lies at the intersection of race, ethnicity, and immigration. Much of my ongoing projects are motivated by two broad questions: 1) How does ethnoracial demographic change influence race relations, group divisions and social cohesion in the U.S. and Europe? 2) And how do immigration policies and advocacy organizations promote or constrain intergroup attitudes and cooperation between ethno-racial groups? To answer these questions, I use quantitative and experimental methods in my research, and frequently collect original datasets to answer questions in novel and rigorous ways.

My research has been published in Social Forces,  Social Psychology Quarterly, Emerging Adulthood, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. My current and ongoing project has also been supported by the International Chapter of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, the Center for Research on Race & Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University, the Graduate and Professional Student Government Research Award and the Sociology department at Indiana University.
