The Global Lunchbox is a weekly conversation convened by the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies that features current research and work-in-progress by Northwestern scholars in the social sciences and humanities working on a range of global issues. This week we will talk with Olga Kamenchuk, an associate research professor in the Institute for Policy Research and a senior lecturer in the School of Communication at Northwestern. Kamenchuk's scholarship centers on the intersections of political psychology, public opinion and policy analysis across a range of international security and inter-cultural contexts, especially in the Eurasian region. She is a Co-Principal Investigator on the Comparative National Elections Project for Russian, Ukrainian, and Serbian electoral studies.

Prior to joining Northwestern, she was co-director of the Eurasian Security & Governance Program at the Ohio State University Mershon Center for International Security Studies and associate professor (clinical) in the OSU School of Communication. Before joining OSU, Dr Kamenchuk worked as a director of international research and communications for the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM), the largest research and polling organization in the former Soviet Union region and as a chair of Sociology of Mass Communication in the Department of International Journalism at MIGIMO University, Russia.

Kamenchuk has over twenty years of experience working with governmental agencies, intergovernmental organizations, and NGOs on a diverse range of communication, program evaluation and public opinion projects across many different policy contexts. During her work in the research and communication industries she conducted hundreds of opinion research projects for the World Bank, European Commission, United Nations, Cambridge University, University of Pennsylvania, U.S. Global Media Agency, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, and Asahi Shimbun.
