Trenton Mize

Promoted to Associate Professor

Department of Sociology

Trenton Mize completed a Ph.D. Sociology, an M.S. in Applied Statistics and an M.A. in Sociology from Indiana University along with a B.A. in Sociology and a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Georgia. He joined the Purdue faculty in 2017.

Mize’s scholarship is in two areas: theoretical work in social psychology and methodological innovation. He applies social psychological theories of status, identity, and stereotyping to understand how gender and sexuality shape how people think about themselves—and how other people view and treat them. He conducts methodological work on modeling categorical outcomes and experimental design. He received his Ph.D. in 2017 and has published twelve peer-reviewed journal articles, one book chapter, and one article in an undergraduate research journal.

As part of the Advanced Methodologies at Purdue (AMAP) initiative, he is involved in the methodological training of graduate students across the colleges of Liberal Arts and Health and Human Sciences. He has developed and taught four new graduate courses and started the now-regular AMAP short course series on advanced methodological techniques.

Mize is committed to transparency and open-science and shares freely all the data, code, and materials associated with his research projects.
