Research

My research is at the intersection of race and ethnicity, public opinion and political communication with a particular focus on immigration. In my dissertation, I explore the interaction between immigrant type and religious identity in influencing public opinion on immigration and refugee resettlement. I examine the role of media in influencing such views and the effectiveness of different prejudice reduction methods. My work integrates quantitative methods with an emphasis on experiments, text analysis, and original surveys.
My original research has been published at Political Communication, the Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics, and Social Science Quarterly.
