Clair Adida, University of California, San Diego to present as part of New Speaker Series -Seminar in Representation & Identity Politics (SIRIP) organized by the
Department of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh

This year’s series features researchers from American and Comparative politics who are doing path-breaking work on topics related to identity, representation, ethnicity, and diversity.

Claire Adida is an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at UC San Diego, as well as a faculty affiliate with the Policy Design and Evaluation Lab (PDEL), the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (CCIS), the Stanford Immigration Policy Lab, and the Evidence in Governance and Politics Groups (EGAP). Her research is in comparative ethnic politics: more specifically in the study of identity, immigration and inter-group cooperation and conflict.

Her work has been published in Comparative Political Studies, Quarterly Journal of Political Science, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Economics and Politics, Economic Inquiry, the Journal of Population Economics, the Journal of Experimental Political Science, Public Opinion Quarterly, Cambridge University Press, and Harvard University Press. Her research has been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Hellman Foundation, and the Evidence in Governance and Politics group.

Current research projects investigate when and how voters hold their politicians accountable in West Africa, the integration experiences of Somali immigrants in the United States, the kinds of messages that increase inclusionary attitudes toward Syrian refugees in the U.S, and how mobile money can be leveraged to improve and increase remittances in rural Africa.

She received her PhD in political science from Stanford University in 2010.
