Areas of Interest

Political psychology, identity politics, public opinion


I'm interested in experiences driving political participation in general and right-populist voting in particular. My research looks at how individuals and sub-groups feel included in society, such that they feel to belong and to be valued for their individual characteristics, as well as competent and autonomous members of society.
