My research interests focus on understanding the role of gender, race, status, and inequality in politics and spans political economy, American and comparative politics, and quantitative methods. 

My dissertation work and current book project focuses on the intersection of gender and race in the United States and how threats to the economic, social, and political power of white men and women in America affects their attitudes and behaviors.  Other current projects of mine focus on gender and racial discrimination in American elections, the political economy of gender, sexism, racism, distributive politics, and experimental methods.

My research has been genersouly supported by the Institute for Social and Policy Studies (ISPS), Center for the Study of American Politics (CSAP), the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), the Women's Faculty Forum (WFF) at Yale, and the University of Utah.

I am currently updating this page to include copies of my recent papers.
