Dr. Haas studies the psychological and biological underpinnings of political attitudes and behavior. Her approach to research is interdisciplinary, combining ideas and methods from social psychology, political psychology, and social cognitive neuroscience.

Dr. Haas is interested in the expression of political attitudes, beliefs, and ideology, and how this expression is influenced by situational factors. Much of her recent work has focused on understanding how uncertainty interacts with threat to shape political behavior (e.g., political tolerance, support for compromise) and underlying cognitive and neural processing. She is also interested in understanding how and when political ideology functions as a social identity, and what this means for political attitude expression.
