Ashley is a Ph.D. candidate in American politics at the University of Michigan. Her primary research interests include race and ethnicity, public opinion, and identity politics. Her dissertation examines the effect of changing demographics in the United States on racial group attitudes and recent political behavior like support for strict immigration policies and the Tea Party movement.
Other projects focus on the role of party signals on race and gender in party realignment (with Nancy Burns, Don Kinder, and Molly Reynolds) and the ability of elite messages to activate white racial identity (with Vincent Hutchings, Robert Mickey, and Hanes Walton, Jr.).
