My research focuses on racial and other social inequalities. I am currently examining the cultural psychologies of settler colonialism and neoliberal capitalism, asking questions such as how these social-structural 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.
