Jasmón Bailey is a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Sociology at the University of Maryland. He holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of South Florida. His research interests include the social psychology of race and racism, intersectionality, labor, and social mobility. Jasmón’s methodological interests include quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method methodologies. His research agenda is to advance scholarship that focuses on how systemic and structural racism influence gendered expectations. Specifically, Jasmón aims to develop a better understanding of how race and gender as status hierarchies are challenged, reinforced, and maintained in social interaction. Bridging expectations states theory and critical race theories, his research explores a rarely examined area in studies pertaining to the social psychology of race, gender and racism—the emergence of status hierarchies in teammate selection. The intellectual merit of his work resides in the quantitative application of intersectionality to analyze the status effects that race and gender have on judgements and decision-making behaviors.
