Research Interests

Broadly, my research interests are centered in areas such as voter behavior, political psychology, public opinion, and elections and campaigns. More specifically, I study the political participation of young people and naturalized minorities, the stability of public opinion and ideology over time, and the effect of social media on public opinion and political psychology.
