Maria Zakharova: SSHRC Storyteller Finalist

April 01, 2014

Maria Zakharova, an SFU Doctoral Political Science student, has been selected as one of SSHRC's Top 25 finalists in the Storytellers competition. SSHRC asked postsecondary students from across the country to demonstrate how a SSHRC-funded research project at their institution is making a difference in the lives of Canadians.

Maria's video on "Valence Demystified: Nature, Sources and consequences of individuals' valence judgments of political parties" in 3 minutes explores how valence plays out in different real and simulated election contexts. 

Maria completed her MA in International Relations at the Tyumen State University in Russia in 2005. She completes a BA in Psychology with Distinction at the University of Calgary in 2008 and is now working on her PhD research at SFU in the sphere of party politics, voting behaviour and comparative politics.
