I study the psychological and biological underpinnings of political attitudes and behavior. My approach to research is interdisciplinary, combining ideas and methods from social psychology, political psychology, and social cognitive neuroscience.

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