More About

Alexandria M. Putman attended Coastal Carolina University for her Bachelor’s degree where she studied communication and political science. While there, she held a position as a research assistant for several years and in 2018, she was awarded the Dyer Fellowship for Public Policy Research, where she and four others were given a small stipend to continue work on an area of public policy. Under this fellowship, she studied the impact historically of the United States Postal Service and how it can be better utilized by the U.S. bureaucracy. During this time, she also worked independently on several projects in areas such as, utopian political theory, public opinion, and American political development. At the University of Georgia, she has continued her research on political behavior and has taken a special interest in political methodology. When she is not working on data collection or reading for class, she can be found reading science fiction and horror novels, as well as, learning to cook new foods with her lovely cat, Mila.
