Emily Schell

Emily Schell is a Doctoral Candidate in Developmental and Psychological Sciences at Stanford's Graduate School of Education (GSE), graduating in June 2024. Prior to starting her doctoral study, Emily received her double bachelors from Brown University in East Asian Studies (with honors) and International Relations. She also served as a Fulbright English Teacher in Taiwan and received her masters in International Comparative Education from Stanford's GSE. Emily uses mixed methods to study "cultural mismatches" between individuals and their social institutions, with the goal of helping higher education and workplaces support their increasingly diverse students and employees. Her...
Current research: As a psychologist in a School of Education, Emily utilizes an interdisciplinary and mixed methods approach to study cultural (mis)matches between students’ norms and the norms of their U.S. higher education institutions. She does so by pursuing three interconnected lines of research, examining (1) advising and teaching approaches that create cultural matches or mismatches for immigrant and international students, (2) cultural taxation of students of color seeking to remedy cultural mismatches with their institutions, and (3) the relationship of cultural (mis)match to students’ development of purpose. This research has enabled her to make both theoretical and applied contributions, bridging gaps between social and cultural psychologists hoping to understand specific domains and impacts of cultural mismatch and higher education leaders hoping to make their communities more inclusive. Her dissertation, entitled "Culturally Responsive Advising: A New Avenue for Supporting Immigrant and International Students," is an example of these contributions.
