Her research demonstrates that national identity within American democracy can be a blessing or a curse. It can enhance participation, trust, and obligation. But it can be a curse when perceptions of deviation from national norms lead to threat and resentment. It can also be a curse for minorities who are attached to their American identity but who also perceive discrimination. Her research articles have also appeared in the Journal of Politics, Political Behavior, Political Psychology, and Political Research Quarterly.
