Bio/Research

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Stanford University. My research interests include American political behavior, public opinion, and race and ethnicity. In particular, my research explains how racial and ethnic minorities in the U.S. develop their identities and political attachments. While racial identity was traditionally seen as an ascribed trait in U.S. politics, the growth of minority populations, increases in intermarriage, and political recognition of multiracial labels signal a new racial moment and an acute change in how Americans view race and ethnicity. I examine identity and behavior in a way that reflects this reality.
