I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. I received my PhD in Political Science at the University of Notre Dame where I was also a Garza PhD Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. My research interests include survey/experimental methods, public opinion formation, and political campaigns.
My main line of research sheds light on the influence of political campaigns on voters’ behavior at the intersection of comparative and American politics. I study the influence of negative (and hostile) partisanship on voters' electoral behavior as well as motivated reasoning during political campaigns. I also participate in collaborative research projects aiming to understanding why voters support corrupt politicians in Latin America, vote-buying in Mexico, and scientific opinion on climate change.
