I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences at Dartmouth College. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Michigan. I was a Next Generation scholar at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan (Link to ISR's news release on my research).
My research focuses on:
1) How can evidence-based sources more effectively mitigate the negative consequences of polarization and misinformation?
2) Can lived experiences and emotions bring individuals of diverse backgrounds together in politics?
I study how public opinion on the government and public policy is formed based on diverse types of information and traumatic events, through the lens of political communication and psychology.
My methodological expertise lies in designing and conducting surveys and experiments, and using latent variable models to measure psychological tendencies.
