Statement

My research centers on American politics, with emphases in political psychology, racial and ethnic politics, and political behavior. I am especially interested in how emotion influences our thinking and behavior regarding politics. I am similarly interested in the role that group-based social identities play in determining political preferences and consequent behavior.
