Young short haired woman

Ashwini is completing her Ph.D. in Social Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research examines (i) how people come to become deeply connected with socio-political groups and ideologies, and (ii) how they maintain and protect such identities and ideologies. Her work takes a multi-method approach in pursuing these questions, complementing traditional social psychology methods with big data and text analysis methods.
