People: Research Fellows
Angela Ocampo examines the political incorporation of racial, ethnic and religious minorities both as every-day participants and as political leaders within American institutions. Her current book project examines the notion of belonging to U.S. society and its influence on political interest and political engagement. Her research also explores how political parties and institutional forces shape the path of minorities into elected office. Angela received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2018.
