About Me

Welcome! In 2019 I received my PhD in political science from Temple University. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for the Philosophical-Experimental Study of Discrimination (CEPDISC) at Aarhus University. My work is motivated by a desire to understand how seemingly non-political features of our society and culture have profound political impacts and often perpetuate inequalities in our political system. Taken together, my current research offers insight into how sexism and gender-based marginalization in our broader culture impact political behavior and attitudes. I use a variety of data sources and innovative methods motivated by the questions I am interested in answering.

I’m also interested in the intersection of politics, psychophysiology, and human behavior. I was previously a Research Associate at the Center for American Women (CAWP) and Politics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. At CAWP, I worked on data collection, management, and analysis. My work has been published or is forthcoming in journals such as Nature Human Behavior, Politics and the Life Sciences, Journal of Women, Politics, and Policy, Politics, Groups, and Identities, Journal of Experimental Political Science, Frontiers in Political Science, and the European Journal of Politics and Gender.
