Angelina Grigoryeva Inaugural Stone Center 2024-2025 Visiting Fellow

The Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics is pleased to announce that Angelina Grigoryeva, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto, has been selected as our inaugural Visiting Fellow for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Angelina will join the Stone Center’s vibrant intellectual community as she works on her project, “New Money in The New Economy: The Shift to Stock-Based Compensation and Its Implications for Wealth, Gender, and Race Inequalities,” which explores a novel explanation for growing economic inequality in the United States.

“Specifically, I focus on the shift to stock-based compensation and show how it has contributed to wealth, gender, and race inequalities,” she explained.

Her project seeks to answer the following questions:

  1. Does stock-based compensation promote greater wealth accumulation than regular wages, thus contributing to overall wealth inequality? 
  2. If so, are the wealth benefits of stock-based compensation greater for male and White workers, thus deepening wealth disparities by gender and race?
  3. Did racial and gender differences in stock-based compensation increase over time, resulting in widening gaps in total pay over time (as opposed to narrowing gaps in wages alone)?’

“I am looking forward to joining the CID as a Visiting Research Fellow in 2024-2025,” Angelina said. “The fellowship provides pre-tenure faculty with a unique opportunity to focus on research, and I am excited to work alongside leading scholars in the field of inequality. I can’t wait to start!”

Angelina joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto in 2018. She received her PhD in Sociology from Princeton University and her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the National University – Higher School of Economics in Moscow.

“The goal of this program is to give protected research time to early-stage faculty members who work on topics related to CID’s mission,” Sasha Killewald, Director of the Stone Center, explained. “Angelina is a great fit as our inaugural visiting fellow because she does work at the intersection of wealth inequality and economic sociology.”

Angela will give a talk on her work during the fellowship. Details will be announced in the fall.
