My research is situated in the field of political psychology and intergroup relations. In particular, my research is focused on (1) the acceptance of cultural diversity, Islamophobia, and perceived value conflicts; (2) attitudes towards religion and the role of religion in the public sphere; and (3) the intersectionality of religion and gender. Most of my research is based on the (quantitative) analyses of survey data. In addition, I have recently begun to explore the representation of Muslims and Islam in the (written) media.
