As a post-doc, I am working with Prof. Peter Thisted Dinesen on identity politics in Scandinavia and the US. My latest paper (to be published in Public Opinion Quarterly) shows that political radio shows react to ideologically inconvenient events by weaving them into their existing partisan narratives. I also recently co-published a paper that uncovers a mental health crisis among US graduate students in political science.

Another article finds that even if your social group is especially affected by an issue, it does not mean you will care about that issue. You can read about it in Scientific American.
