Politics Honors student Marissa Adler has been named a Fellow of the Advanced Empirical Research on Politics for Undergraduates Program of the Society for Political Methodology. The program recognizes and encourages high-quality empirical political research among undergraduate students working with faculty mentors. As a Fellow, Marissa will receive financial support for her travel, lodging and registration at the annual Society for Political Methodology conference, where she will present her research to political science faculty from around the nation. She is also eligible to receive funds for miscellaneous research expenses.
Marissa's project, “Voting Behavior 2016: Economic Anxiety vs. Xenophobia,” uses survey experiments to understand the relative importance of economics and culture in shaping voters’ decisions in the 2016 presidential election.
