Natalie Masuoka is an associate professor of political science and Asian American studies and an expert on racial and ethnic politics, immigration, political behavior, and public opinion.
She is the co-author of “The Politics of Belonging: Race, Public Opinion and Immigration,” winner of the 2014 Ralph Bunche Award from the American Political Science Association, which examines how and why whites, Blacks, Asian Americans and Latinos view immigration and immigrants in systematically different ways.
Her second book, “Multiracial Identity and Racial Politics in the United States,” explores the rise of Americans who self-identify as mixed race or multiracial and the impact of this identity on politics.
