Hayden is a sophomore at the College, majoring in Computational and Applied Mathematics and Statistics (CAMS), Applied Statistics Track and minoring in Business Analytics. She is conducting research as a member of the Contentious Interpersonal Interactions Project (CIPI) team. Her motivation for research is the desire to create actionable data that could facilitate higher levels of political engagement (especially within more traditionally disenfranchised groups). Outside of her time in the lab, Hayden works as a graphic designer for Swem's External Relations Department and fiddles with programming. For fun, she enjoys haphazardly learning languages and singing.
