I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University. My research explores the interplay of inequality, identity and political representation. One stream of my work examines how economic anxiety and inequality influence immigration attitudes. In another stream I study the representation of minority groups with a special emphasis on sexual orientation and gender identity.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in leading academic journals, including the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and the British Journal of Political Science. I have also written for the Washington Post, Politico and The New Republic, and my work has been covered by the Washington Post and FiveThirtyEight, among others.
