Professor David Lazer, affiliate faculty in the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, was recently named a 2019 Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration. Lazer’s research explores the complex and oft-fraught relationship between technology and democracy and alternatives to the status quo, such as more interpersonal approaches for politicians to engage with their constituents, for example.
The full piece on his recent Fellow recognition, and more about his research, is available here.
