Her co-authored paper “Somos Más: How Racial Threat and Anger Mobilized Latino Voters in The Trump Era” was recently published in PRQ. Her dissertation explores how identity can be activated and subsequently influence political behavior. She will use the financial support provided by the Fund for Latino Scholarship help fund an experiment for her dissertation that aims to disentangle how different identity measures such as linked fate and group consciousness influence political attitudes and behaviors of Latinos in the United States.
