Personal profile

Research Biography

I’m a Research Fellow in Social, Political, and Feminist Psychology. I seek to understand how we can achieve and maintain social change via three related lines of work: 1) when and why people will engage in political actions (e.g., protests, blockades, acts of civil disobedience) to disrupt or reinforce the status quo (e.g., Black Lives Matter vs. All Lives Matter); 2) how participating in social movements influence people's commtiment to a cause, especially when these actions are unsuccessful in achieving the movement's goals; and 3) when and why social movements are effective in persuading observers to support and/or join a cause (and when they encounter resistance).

I study these processes in a number of contexts, but I'm particularly interested in gender equality efforts and examining these using an intersectional feminist lens (e.g., considering the unique challenges and prejudices that minority women face).
