Generally, my research applies advanced statistical methods to substantially important research questions with the aim of testing and refining theories of political socialization, political attitudes, and electoral choice. Thereby, I am mainly interested in how individuals form and retain these attitudes and identities over time and across different political systems. My research can be grouped into three broad themes.
