Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a professor at Princeton University, has been named one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences (AAPSS) this year. She is known for her work on reducing prejudice and conflict, as well as developing social norms in different environments.

Paluck’s research focuses on ethnic conflict, political conflict, youth conflict in schools, and violence against women. Through large-scale field experiments, she tests theory-driven interventions that target social norms and behavior. This work has been instrumental in identifying more effective ways to reduce prejudice, violence and conflict in society.

Marta Tienda, president of AAPSS and professor at Princeton, welcomed the new fellows with great enthusiasm. She believes that at a pivotal moment in American democracy, the insights provided by social science leaders like Paluk are essential to reimagining America’s global leadership and securing economic opportunity for future generations.

Paluck joined the Princeton faculty in 2009 after completing a fellowship at the Harvard Academy of International Affairs and earning a Ph.D. and BA in Psychology from Yale University. In addition to being named a Fellow of the AAPSS, she has received numerous other awards and honors throughout her career, including two Robert B. Cialdini for Field Research, an Early Career Award from the Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict, and Violence of the American Psychological Association
