PhD, Environmental Policy, Duke University
As a political scientist and environmental communication expert, I research public opinion on environmental issues, particularly climate change. My research explores the role of identities in driving political attitudes. Specifically, I look at how non-partisan identities -- such as parental, place-based, or conservationist identities -- influence how individuals form their attitudes on environmental issues. My research has implications for efforts to overcome partisan divisions on environmental policies through framing and communication.
