She has received both the Burns Roper Fellowship from the American Association of Public Opinion Research, and the Distinguished Junior Scholar Award from the American Political Science Association's Political Psychology section. In 2016, she founded WomenAlsoKnowStuff, a website that promotes women in political science.
