Bethany Albertson is a political psychologist and her work explores political attitudes and persuasion. Her current research relies on surveys and experiments to examine the effect of religious appeals in American politics and the relationship between emotion and cognition, with a recent focus on the role of anxiety on attitudes towards immigration.

She is the author of numerous articles and book chapters on topics, such as climate change and its political aspects, political psychology, anxiety, and immigration. She has co-authored a forthcoming book, "Anxious Politics: Democratic Citizenship in a Threatening World," which will be published by Cambridge University Press.
