I study social inequality. Using diverse quantitative and qualitative methods, I look at the relationship between social systems (settler colonialism; neoliberal capitalism) and individuals, asking questions such as how these systems are perceived, experienced, legitimized, and resisted.
Additionally, I have conducted research on social issues such as immigration, COVID-19, and police militarization, often at the intersection of political and existential psychology.
