Ph.D. Candidate in Clinical Psychology, Oklahoma State University

Devanshi Patel is a pre-internship graduate student in the Clinical program. Her research explores social perceptions of parenting and investigates stigma toward parents. Her thesis examines whether – and why – parents of children with "obesity" are stigmatized, and her future work will take intersectional approaches to understanding the role that body shape – along with target identity features (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity) – play in weight stigma.
