I’m interested in the relationships between native born settlers and immigrants in relation to the welfare state. My work ranges from survey- and experimentally-based work on civic (and uncivic) orientations to multi-country comparative work on immigration and social spending. Some of my research on immigration has focused on ethnoreligious identity, immigration flows, and welfare spending analyses.
