Samara Klar is an Assistant Professor of Political Science. She studies how individuals' identities -- the groups, roles, and associations with which they identify -- influence their political attitudes and behavior. She uses experimental methods (in and outside the lab), survey analyses, and other statistical tools to learn about the political consequences of our multiple and, at times, conflicting identities. Her book, Independent Politics, (co-authored with Yanna Krupnikov) was published by Cambridge University Press in 2016. Dr. Klar received her Ph.D.in Political Science from Northwestern University (2013) and also holds degrees in political science from McGill University and Columbia University.
