Matt PeljovichUndergraduate Research Assistant

Matt Peljovich is a senior studying public policy at Duke and an undergraduate research assistant at the World Food Policy Center. His past research has explored ways to reform federal budget processes, promote student voting in times of a pandemic, and measure how representative our elected officials are. He is interested in food policy because of its interdisciplinary nature—combining research into agriculture, economics, and social policy—and for its power to help those in the local community.

“Working at the WFPC has been an amazing experience. I’ve gotten to undertake my own research on a fascinating topic and have learned so much and gotten so much support and guidance from everyone on the team. You all gave me a great opportunity to present my work and I’m really grateful that I got to wrap up my undergrad career here!” — Matt Peljovich
