Her current research investigates the conditions that reduce out-group discrimination, and the strategies vulnerable minorities employ to navigate discriminatory environments. Her work is funded by the National Science Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Hellman Foundation, and the Evidence in Governance and Politics Group. Her works have been published in leading journals such as Science Advances, PLoS ONE, Quarterly Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Journal of Population Economics.
