Hello! I'm Maya Dalton.
I am a second-year doctoral student in political science at Penn State University. I am studying Comparative Politics and Political Methodology, with the intent to apply to the Social Data Analytics (SoDA) Program in the coming year. I recently graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Wake Forest University. I am a recipient of the Graduate Research Fellow from the National Science Foundation and will begin my tenure as a fellow this fall. I have both the skill set and professional background necessary to pursue a career in the academic world. Browse my site to see all that I have to offer, download my CV, and contact me for further inquiries!
