Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Michigan. I study group conflict and the way in which identities are brought to bear on political preferences and voting behavior in the United States. My dissertation focuses on the conditions under which racial identification among white Americans is a salient and significant predictor of policies, candidates, and attitudes toward racial and ethnic groups. 

My research has been generously supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and and a Gerald R. Ford Fellowship through the University of Michigan.
