Abby Paragele

Junior Analyst

Abby Paragele is a recent graduate of public policy from University of California, Riverside, and is committed to learn more about who votes and the institutions that impede and promote their voting habits. Abby is dedicated to understanding and fulfilling the needs of her cohort, especially those who have been traditionally shunted outside by policymakers and the government. 

Abby received her first taste of public opinion polling during her internship at Lake Research Partners where she experienced her first political cycle during the 2018 midterms. She also previously interned at the Robert Presley Center of Criminal Justice Studies, helping bridge the literary gap between academia and professionals. Her career goals include finding dynamic ways of including academic innovation into practical professional applications. 

Outside of work, you can usually find Abby obsessing over the NBA or researching which recipe to cook next.
