Julia Kamin, Research Consultant

As Civic Health Project’s Research Consultant, Julia primarily works on developing “PQ”, a measurement tool designed to measure the impact of media and interventions on reducing or increasing toxic polarization

Based in New York City, Julia works with organizations that leverage social science to improve civic discourse and mitigate toxic political polarization both on and off line. In her dissertation work, Julia used agent based models and experimental designs to examine the dynamics of information polarization in social media. Previously she was research manager at Citizens and Technology Lab, Cornell University, where she conducted field experiments in collaboration with online communities to test the effectiveness of prosocial interventions.

Julia received her PhD in Political Science from the University of Michigan. She has a Bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and a Masters in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School.
