Dr. Schneider teaches courses in the fields of gender and politics, political sociology, and LGBTQ Studies. Her current research considers the relationship between gender and election violence in transitional democracies, including Uganda and Tunisia.

She is working on a book chapter for an edited volume on gender and political violence (with Pär Zetterberg and Elin Bjarnegard) that examines violence against female political candidates in local council elections drawing upon her fieldwork in Uganda.
