POSC 1040 Introduction to Comparative Politics
My primary research focuses on political psychology and comparative context surrounding the causes and consequences of collective identities, with a specialization in European Union politics. I am particularly interested in the extent to which personality affects individuals' national versus European identity. Additional interests include immigration attitudes, economic voting, and political disagreement.
