Dr. Moradi’s research, teaching, and professional service reflect her commitment to informing social justice efforts with scientific evidence and informing scientific advancements with social justice considerations. Specifically, Dr. Moradi’s research program focuses on experiences of prejudice, discrimination, objectification, and collective identity. This research examines the nature of these experiences, their implications for psychosocial functioning such as health and work, and their intersections across axes of inequality (e.g., heterosexism, racism, sexism). This research has garnered funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the Palm Center, the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA), and the American Psychological Foundation’s Wayne F. Placek Award.

Dr. Moradi is the recipient of national awards including the the American Psychological Association (APA) Society of Counseling Psychology Best in Science Award, APA Society for the Psychological Study of LGBT Issues Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award, APA Committee on Women in Psychology Emerging Leader Award, and Early Career Awards from the APA Society of Counseling Psychology and its Section for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Issues.
