My research focuses on political conflict. What causes people to disagree about politics? What are the consequences of this disagreement for individuals' interactions and for democracy in general?
Specifically, some of my ongoing projects have explored:
- The role of social identity in heterogeneous reactions to political scandal
- The dynamic effect of personality traits on political attitudes over time
- Ideological and partisan differences in moral reasoning
