FOCUS
Tyler Jimenez is broadly interested in how people respond to threats, be that to their society, worldview, or even existence, and how these responses affect health and intergroup relations. This has led to research on topics such as racist backlash against social progress and policy decisions in the face of shifting racial demographics. In the future, Tyler Jimenez hopes to continue researching these and similar topics, with an eye towards improving the health of, particularly Indigenous, communities.
