Research Interests:
With growing global migration, it’s become increasingly important to understand people’s attitudes towards immigrants. Past research however has focused on framing immigrant attitudes in terms of zero-sum competition—ignoring the many ways positive attitudes towards immigrants manifest. My research focuses on how these positive attitudes can manifest from perceived economic utility and xenocentrism, and its applications to communicating policy and reducing prejudice.
