The SNaPP Lab was founded in 2013 and is a collaborative research group, directed by Professor Jaime Settle but driven by the questions and ideas of the undergraduates involved in the group. We are motivated by puzzles that explore the biological, psychological, and social underpinnings of political behavior.  Each year, students simultaneously work on an independent portfolio or research project while contributing to an ongoing project in the lab related to Prof. Settle’s active research agenda. The goal of the SNaPP Lab experience is to enable students to develop the analytical, methodological and writing skills necessary to:

1) Successfully execute a high-quality independent research project before they graduate and

2) Plan for and attain post-graduation opportunities that utilize those skills.
