About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in American politics in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona. My research mainly focuses on political psychology, public opinion, race/ethnicity and politics, and political behavior within American politics contexts, particularly on affective polarization, partisanship, ideology, and authoritarian personality. Most often, I use experimental methods (in and outside the lab), surveys, text analysis, and other statistical tools.

My work has been published or is forthcoming  at the State Politics & Policy Quarterly and Politics and Life Sciences

My dissertation project is supported by funding from the Princeton Dissertation Scholars Program through the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice at Princeton University, and survey space from the Polarization Research Lab

I am currently on the academic job market during the 2023-2024 academic year. My CV.
