The Institute for Data, Democracy & Politics’ (IDDP) research fellowships support projects by Ph.D. or other terminal degree holders at any stage of their career. The research should align with IDDP’s mission to help the public, journalists and policymakers understand digital media’s influence on public dialogue and opinion and to develop sound solutions to disinformation and other ills that arise in these spaces. This Q & A is part of a series in which GW Today introduces the fellows to the university community.
