I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Chicago affiliated with the political science department and the GenForward Survey Project. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Indiana University in August 2017. My research agenda focuses on group consciousness and intergroup attitudes as applied to white identity and racial attitudes, affective political polarization, and public opinion in American politics. I have published articles in PS: Political Science & Politics, American Review of Politics, and Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies, as well as mainstream outlets like The Washington Post and Limestone Post Magazine.
