Violence, Discrimination, and Mental Health
My work in progress uses quasi-representative survey data to examine how self-sentiments link mental health outcomes with discrimination, harassment, victimization, and other interactional problems known to affect women, especially women of color, and gender and sexual minorities at higher rates than other groups. This work also examines the role of self-sentiments in self- and other-directed aggression and violence.
Identity Sentiments and Categorical Inequality
My work in progress uses cultural sentiment data to measure occupational status and examine its implications for inequality, including the contribution of the cultural devaluation of female-dominated occupations to the gender wage gap. Additional waves of data are being used to assess changes in sentiments after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and examine the stability of pandemic-related cultural changes over time.

Cultural and Individual Differences in Social Perception
My work in progress examines the extent of stability vs. change in U.S. cultural impression formation dynamics over time, examines how the cultural meanings of situationally enacted identities affect mental health, and investigates strategies for mitigating identity conflict.
