My research concerns prejudice and immigration attitudes, and how such attitudes develop in different political and social contexts.
My research interests lie in how attitudes towards immigration and immigrants develop in different contexts as well as over time. In this, I have primarily focused on the relationship between political circumstances and prejudice, including how individuals' beliefs, loyalties, and experiences interact with contextual factors to shape peoples' attitudes, but also on the influence of social factors in the individual's immediate surrounding. I'm currently involved in a research project investigating the development of prejudice in adolescence, with a particular focus on the interrelated effects of parents, peers and intergroup contact.
