Science magazine just ran a super-cool article that covered my research this past weekend:
LSA /OS Honors students Katherine Ruehrdanz and Rebecca Strauss conducted research during the Inauguration weekend in Washington, DC. Specifically, they conducted surveys at the Counter-Inaugural protests and the Women’s March on Washington. They were accompanied on the trip by Assistant Professor Michael Heaney. Both women are writing honors theses in Organizational Studies (OS).
Congratulations to Nabah Rizvi on winning a Blue Ribbon for her poster on “Lobbying Firms and their Role in American Politics” presented to the symposium of the Community College Summer Research Fellowship Program (CCSFP) at the University of Michigan. Nabah worked this summer under the supervision of Zander Furnas and myself in the Interest Group Politics Lab Group.
Congratulations to Dulce Guerrero, an undergraduate student at the University of California-Irvine, who was my student this year in the Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP). Yesterday, Dulce presented her poster, titled “Reforming the California Prison System: The Political and Social Implications of Replacing Mandatory Sentencing with Discretionary Sentencing”, to SROP’s end-of-the-summer symposium. Best wishes and good luck to Dulce!
