As of Fall 2017, I am a post-doctoral fellow at Southern Methodist University, where I work with the Latino Center for Leadership Development and the John G. Tower Center for Political Studies. Broadly, my work is situated in American race and ethnic politics and political behavior. I examine how people with various identities use race to evaluate minority candidates, particularly multiracial and racially ambiguous candidates. I also study legislator behavior within legislative institutions. My work has been published in Politics, Groups, and Identities, and has been supported by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant, the Qualtrics Behavioral Research Grant, the APSA Latino Scholarship Fund, and the William A. Steiger Fund for Legislative Politics through the Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs.
