Paluck recognized with award by American Academy of Political and Social Science

Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a distinguished professor of psychology and public affairs at Princeton University, has been recognized as one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) this year. Her research focuses on ethnic conflict, political conflict, conflict among young people in schools, and violence against women. Through large-scale field experiments, she tests theoretically driven interventions that target social norms and behavior with the goal of reducing prejudice, violence, and conflict in society.

Paluck’s work has been instrumental in identifying more effective ways to address complex social issues. Marta Tienda, the president of AAPSS and a fellow professor at Princeton, welcomed the new fellows with great enthusiasm. She believes that the insights provided by social science thought leaders like Paluck are essential for reimagining American world leadership and ensuring economic opportunities for future generations.

Before joining the Princeton faculty in 2009, Paluck completed a fellowship at the Harvard Academy for International Affairs and obtained her Ph.D. and B.S. in psychology from Yale University. In addition to being named an AAPSS fellow, she has received numerous other awards and honors throughout her career, including two Robert B. Cialdini Awards for field research, an Early Career Award from the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict
