Christopher Ojeda's research focuses on the social and economic origins of political inequality, especially those rooted in childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. He approaches this topic through the lenses of political behavior, political psychology, and public opinion, and can discuss the role children and adolescents have in shaping their political identity; how mental health problems, especially those rooted in childhood and adolescence, affect political participation; how political participation habits are formed; and how childhood poverty affects participation later in life.
