Prerna Singh Named CIFAR Fellow

July 30, 2019

Prerna Singh, Associate Professor of Political Science, and International and Public Affairs, is among 64 new fellows named by CIFAR, a Canadian-based global charitable organization that convenes extraordinary interdisciplinary researchers from around the world to address science and humanity’s most important questions.

Singh will be a fellow in the CIFAR Boundaries, Membership and Belonging program, which examines if it’s possible to have a world without “us” and “them.” Singh also already has an appointment in the CIFAR Successful Societies program. 

By supporting long-term interdisciplinary collaboration, CIFAR provides researchers with an unparalleled environment of trust, transparency and knowledge sharing. The organization’s time-tested model inspires new directions of inquiry, accelerates discovery and yields breakthroughs across borders and academic disciplines.
