Psychology Professor Andrea Hopmeyer passed away in November after a valiant three-year battle with breast cancer.

Andrea joined the Oxy faculty in 1996. A prolific scholar, she published more than two dozen articles and book chapters on the social and emotional development of children, adolescents, and emerging adults, focusing on such issues as loneliness, peer victimization, and popularity. She was proud of the number of articles she co-authored with her students, some of which were the product of her participation in the Undergraduate Research Center’s Summer Research Program. (You can see an example of the impact of Andrea’s mentorship in this interview with her and one of her student co-authors, Alexis Morse ’18.) Her courses on such subjects as Developmental Psychology, Psychological Methods, and Social Psychology were always ranked highly in student evaluations.

A native of Montreal, Andrea was a summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Clark University. She earned her master’s and doctorate in psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
