Rebecca Carey

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Rebecca Carey is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Princeton University. Her research takes a sociocultural perspective to investigate how experiences of societal and economic adversity impact people’s close relationships, and how close relationships, in turn, can impact socioeconomic disparities in health and well-being. She currently runs the Adversity and Relationships in Context (ARC) Lab, where she works with a diligent team of researchers to examine a wide range of topics, including social class, social networks, self and identity, health disparities, first-generation college students, and cross-class interactions. Before coming to Princeton, Rebecca completed her Ph.D. at Stanford University and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
