My research aims to understand and address racial and other social inequalities.
Broadly, my recent work examines the cultural psychologies of settler colonialism and neoliberal capitalism, asking questions such as how free-market economics shapes social and political attitudes (Jimenez & Schmitt, under review; Schmitt & Jimenez, in prep).
Additionally, I have conducted research on social issues such as immigration (Jimenez et al., 2021), COVID-19 (Jimenez et al., 2020), and police militarization (Jimenez et al., 2022).
In conducting this research, I seek to bridge the micro and macro levels, considering the interaction between people and society, as well as integrate theories and methods from across the social sciences.
