About

Nicole Overstreet

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Clark UniversityI have been at Clark University since Fall 2014. I received my BA from Smith College and I earned my MA and PhD in social psychology from the University of Connecticut. I continued my work on the intersection of social and health psychology as a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University‚Äôs Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS.

I am passionate about addressing health inequities and this passion extends into my teaching on courses related to stigma, health, race, and gender. My courses encourage students to grapple with the ways in which biological, psychological, and social factors influence health. Moreover, my courses provide students with a strong foundation for applying psychological theories and perspectives to understanding these issues.
