I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Washington University in St Louis. Previously, I taught at Miami University.  My research interests fall broadly into political behavior, political psychology, and social identity.  My current research examines whether citizens are willing to meet the demands of a tolerant society. In particular, I investigate how social pressure may prevent individuals from speaking up on behalf of tolerance. I completed my PhD at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in May 2017.
