My research examines anti-immigrant sentiment in the political arena, focusing on the psychological predispositions that lead people towards constructing narrower categories for immigrants. I’m also interested in the ways in which citizenship laws effect citizens’ view of outsiders; laws effecting migrants in pathway to citizenship; media and rise of the far right in Europe; and the representation of migration on both social and mainstream media.
