My research focuses on how our identities shape (and are shaped by) how we think about, talk about, and do politics. For instance, in two lines of work, I study how identity processes impact (a) political deliberation and discussion, and (b) attitudes and behavior towards political outgroups and minorities. My recent work examines technologically-mediated environments to illuminate how these phenomena operate in the digital age. I combine traditional social psychology methods (surveys, experiments) with computational social science methods (language analysis, network analysis) to study identity and politics in both controlled and naturalistic settings.

I will be accepting a PhD student this admissions cycle (to start in Fall 2023).
