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. My dissertation examines what types of people experience anxiety over politics and how these differential experiences influence civic and information engagement. I have taught a range of American politics classes including the presidency and political psychology.
