Question: 

What problem or need do you hope to address through service and/or research?

Answer: 

Since the 2016 election, everyone is taking about how divided the country is. I’ve read too many think pieces about the rural/urban divide, the division between coastal states and middle America. I hope to address political divides in my research. Psychology and political science have always been my two favorite academic subjects, so it was natural for me to combine them.
