Melanie Brewster, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Education at Columbia University, earned her Ph.D from the University of Florida. Her research focuses on marginalized groups and examines how experiences of discrimination and stigma may shape the mental health of minority group members (e.g., LGBTQ individuals, atheists, people of color). Dr. Brewster also examines potential resilience factors, such as bicultural self-efficacy and cognitive flexibility, that may promote the mental health of minority individuals. Her first book, Atheists in America, was published in 2014 by Columbia University Press. She tweets about atheism, queer issues, and academia @melysebrewster

 

Currently I am working on projects related to minority stress experiences amongst marginalized groups -- particularly groups that aren't traditionally examined in the "minority stress" canon -- such as atheist people, bisexual and non-monosexual groups, transgender individuals, asexual people, individuals with multiple marginalized identities, heterosexual close friends and family members of sexual minority folks, and others. Basically, individuals who occupy the margins of the marginalized. 

I am also interested in queer and non-traditional romantic relationships, as well as connection and dating in the digital world.
