Mackenzie Israel-Trummel is a PhD candidate in American Politics whose research interests include race, gender, political identity and behavior. Her dissertation project uses intersectionality as an analytical framework to understand three puzzles related to political attitudes and behavior. Her first paper examines how candidates' race and gender operate individually and jointly to influence voter support, and in particular how Black women candidates fare under conditions of racial threat. Her second project explores how gender conditions linked fate for Black Americans, and finds that beliefs about gender discrimination affect Black women's sense of racial linked fate.
