Hi! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Government at Harvard University. I am also a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, a Fellow in the Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality & Social Policy, a Graduate Student Associate of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. I received my B.A. in Middle East Studies and Arabic, with a minor in Modern Hebrew, from Brigham Young University in 2013.
I study the psychology of intergroup relations and conflict, with a focus on interventions intended to improve intergroup relations. I also study the role of social media, misinformation, and conspiracy theories in the Middle East. In both of these research agendas, I use a diverse set of methodological approaches, including lab and survey experiments, natural experiments, computational textual analysis, and large-scale textual data collection.
