Research

My research goal is to incorporate the diverse viewpoints and life experiences of both racial/ethnic minorities and women into mainstream U.S. politics research. I am particularly interested in examining questions of intersectionality of multiple identities, especially the intersection of race/ethnicity and gender. In my research, I outline the conditions under which minorities and women successfully compete for electoral office. I also study how racial/ethnic minority and women voters can shape or influence electoral politics, particularly examining the influence of intersecting identities on their political behavior, such as their voter turnout rates and candidate selection.
