I am a third year PhD student of Political Science at Stony Brook University in New York. I study political psychology and am interested in partisanship, intergroup relations, political identities, political cognition/information processing, and comparative political institutions.

I was born in the UK but grew up in New Zealand. My background is in psychology and I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in cross-cultural psychology from Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
