I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication at Yale University. The overarching goal of my research is to gain deeper insight into the role of social identity in human behavior, judgment, and decision-making. More specifically, I investigate the role of the messenger (e.g., friends and family, scientists), the audience (e.g., via differences in political ideology, religion, perceived knowledge), and the message itself (e.g., framing, language complexity) in public responses to contested social, political, and scientific issues.
