About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at George Washington University. In my research, I explore how emotionally resonant political discourse shapes public opinion about immigration, as well as how far-right parties and leaders use discourse to construct shared identities among their followers. My research is methodologically eclectic, as I employ tools ranging from quantitative text analysis of social media content and survey experiments to process tracing and comparative case studies.
