Associate Professor of Sociology
Senior Fellow, Kenan Institute for Ethics
The main goal of my research is to understand the structure, origins, and consequences of different moral and political worldviews. I try to integrate the insights of sociology, psychology, and the cognitive sciences to figure out where beliefs come from and how they matter for identity and behavior.
These days, I am also writing about causal inference with panel data, set-theoretic data analysis, and the role of methods in the study of culture.
