My research investigates the structure and dynamics of political belief systems. I am particularly interested in discerning the sources of constraint in belief systems – why certain ideas seem to “go together.” My recent research has focused on the politicization of public attitudes towards science, new trends in American mass polarization, and applications of computational text analysis tools for the study of culture.
