About Me

I study stereotypes of male and female political candidates and how and whether they affect the electoral prospects of women. I also study prejudice against female candidates.

I am currently interested in women’s political ambition or why so few women run for office.

I am interested in the effects of targeting female voters.

I am passionate about increasing the number of women in academia and mentoring female scholars.
