Research Interests

Dr. Rios’ work focuses on people’s responses to threats to their self-concepts, interpersonal relationships, or group identities. Examples of such threats include being uncertain about oneself or one’s attitudes, being socially excluded, and perceiving an outgroup to threaten the ingroup’s power/resources or fundamental values.

Dr. Rios has two primary areas of research within this tradition. In the first, she studies the ways in which different forms of self-concept and relational threat impact individuals' motives to be unique from versus similar to others. Dr. Rios is particularly interested in how these motives are manifest in people's willingness to express and adopt minority (unique) versus majority (common) opinions. Although historically, research in social psychology has emphasized tendencies toward conformity, she has shown that certain threats can trigger behaviors aimed at establishing one’s distinctiveness from others.

In another area of research, Dr. Rios studies how perceptions of threat, especially dominant group members’ (e.g., White/European Americans’) perceptions of threat from subordinate groups, affect attitudes toward specific outgroups, as well as toward diversity more generally. Much of her recent work examines reasons that dominant group members may see multiculturalism—the recognition and celebration of diversity—as threatening, and ways to reduce these feelings of threat.
