Kristin Lunz Trujillo
Post Doctoral Research Fellow

Kristin is a postdoctoral research associate in the Lazer Lab. She is a former Visiting Instructor of Political Science at Carleton College and received her PhD in Political Science with a minor in political psychology at the University of Minnesota. Her research adopts a political psychology framework to investigate two often interrelated areas relevant to politics: identity/intergroup dynamics and misinformation. She has several published papers on misinformation adoption and correction particularly relating to vaccines and public health attitudes and behaviors. She also researches the role of understanding rurality as a social identity in contemporary politics, particularly how such a rural identity relates to class, race, region, populism, immigration, and health and science attitudes. Krissy has published work in academic journals such as Social Science & Medicine, the International Journal of Public Opinion Research, Political Research Quarterly, and the Journal of Rural Health, among others. She has also written journalistic pieces that have appeared in many outlets, including Time and US News and World Report.
