Current Affiliation
Postdoctoral Fellow, Toronto Metropolitan University

PhD (ABD), Social Psychology, University of Western Ontario

Hello, my name is Paolo Palma, and I am a social scientist broadly interested in how people’s attitudes shape their behavior in intergroup contexts. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow working on the Engage project at the HIV Prevention Lab with Dr. Trevor Hart, focusing on the experiences of immigrant and ethnic minority GBM’s (gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men) experiences in the LGBTQ+ community.

I received my graduate training at the University of Western Ontario’s joint program in Social Psychology and Migration and Ethnic Relations with Dr. Victoria Esses. For my dissertation, I focused on how economic thinking influenced people’s attitudes towards different types of immigrants.

In addition to my academic research experience, I have also worked as a researcher with the federal government studying COVID’s economic impact on the culture and heritage sector, a research fellow with Visier, Inc. developing corporate DEI strategies, and a contract researcher with the London & Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership.

For more information on my past and current works, please visit my publications and research tabs.
