Former Bell Fellow

A. Nicole Kreisberg is a sociologist who studies immigrant inequalities in educational institutions and the labor market. Nicole holds a PhD in sociology from Brown University, and an AM in social policy from the University of Chicago. Her dissertation used an original field experiment, a national survey experiment, and in-depth interviews to understand whether and why employers screen out Latino male college graduates from entry-level employment based on nativity and legal status. She has published research on stratification among immigrants in educational attainment and occupational prestige; the relationship between organizational behavior and employment declines among refugees; and employment discrimination more generally. As a Bell Fellow, she worked on projects related to immigrant inequality in the U.S. labor market. (Nicole is currently an assistant professor in public policy and sociology at Penn State University.)
