Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Amir Maghsoodi. I am a card-carrying Physicist studying to become a Psychologist. In August 2018, I joined the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Illinois as a PhD student.
I am an Iranian-American scholar-activist and am passionate about using my research and academic training as a tool for social justice issues. My research interests in psychology stand at the confluence of identity, belonging, and developmental psychology.
I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Association for Psychological Science (APS), and the Association for Research in Personality (ARP). I am also the campus representative for APA Division 45 (Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity, and Race) at the University of Illinois.
