Emma Lurie is a PhD student at the UC Berkeley School of Information where she researches how the policy choices made by platforms and government agencies shape the online election information infrastructure. In particular, her research links misinformation to voter disenfranchisement, particularly among marginalized communities that already have historical distrust in the election process.
Lurie previously worked at MIT’s Election Data Science Lab and the CRED lab at Wellesley College, investigating online misinformation in relation to user web literacy skills. She received honorable mention from the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program for her work at the CRED lab.
