Her previous research was published in Ethnic and Racial Studies and Nationalities Papers, among other sources. Her ongoing research is driven by questions about the conditions under which cultural traits become foundations of politicized collective identities and conditions under which political violence occurs.

She is also working on a collaborative project examining party patronage in post-communist democracies.
