Kirill Zhirkov

He uses these methods to address a number of substantive questions in the field of political psychology. One of them is the role of cognition in politics: how people perceive the social world and how these perceptions affect political preferences and behaviors. Kirill's work has been published in Political Analysis, the Journal of Politics, and Public Opinion Quarterly, among others.
