Biographical sketch and research interests

I am a Political Science PhD Candidate at the University of California, Merced. My research sits broadly within political psychology and American political behavior. I put a great deal of focus on research questions about how emotions and affective entities influence political attitudes and behavior. I employ mostly experimental methods in order to address political cognition and how individuals process their political worlds.
