Research Interests

My research focuses on the beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors of evangelical Christians on the topic of climate change. I am particularly interested in how evangelicals form their beliefs about climate change, what types of communication techniques can influence their beliefs, and how evangelicals compare to other demographics in the United States and around the world.
