My research lies at the intersection of comparative politics and social psychology. My dissertation looks at the effect of attack advertising on voting behavior (candidate perceptions, candidate evaluations, and vote intentions), paying special attention to the psychological mechanisms responsible for these effects. My dissertation uses a combination of survey data and data from an original laboratory experiment conducted in Mexico in 2012. I've also conducted research on West and Southern African media systems and Latin American political parties.
