Areas of Expertise:
  • Social Psychology
  • Cultural Psychology

  • Political Psychology
I am an Assistant Professor in Psychology, with experience in social psychology, cultural psychology, political psychology and psychology of religion. My current projects focus on (1) understanding religiosity as a correlate of psychological conservatism that is potentially quite different from political conservatism (2) more generally assessing whether 2- or N-dimensional models of ideology strike a better balance between simplicity and explanatory power than the traditional one-dimensional (liberal vs. conservative) model (3) experimental approaches to transforming ideological self-construal, and (4) investigating whether there are moral objections to certain practices (like torture) that cannot be reduced to the known differences in moral priorities between liberals and conservatives.
