The Warren Mitofsky Award for Excellence in Public Opinion Research brings together in one room some of the most prestigious names in the current polling industry to celebrate the recipient’s lifetime achievement in opinion research. The 2022 Mitofsky Award winner was Dr. Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor at the Annenberg School for Communication of the University of Pennsylvania.
One of the legacies that Warren Mitofsky also left was the formation of a fellowship in his name. This year’s Mitofsky Fellow is Nathália Santos, a PhD student in Cornell University’s Department of Sociology. Nathália joins a distinguished list of Mitofsky Graduate Research Fellows and is pictured here (right) attending the Roper Center’s annual Mitofsky Award event in Washington, D.C.
Nathália Santos is a Ph.D. student in the Sociology Department at Cornell University and a Dean’s Excellence Scholar. Her research interests lie at the intersection of Social Networks, human behavior, decision-making, and collective action in disadvantaged communities. Her motivation is to understand how to foster and activate trust networks for social action in Latin America. Prior to starting her Ph.D. studies, Nathália received her BA in Economics and Political Science from Bryn Mawr College and worked as an Academic Technologist at Barnard College.
