The Rockefeller Center Senior Honors Thesis Grants program provides funding of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences.

Genna Liu, a member of the Class of 2019, is a Quantitative Social Science and Economics major.

Genna is interested in using quantitative analysis to understand issues relating to immigration, trade, and policy. After becoming interested in survey methodology through the Government DSP, she is conducting a survey experiment using conjoint analysis and framing treatments to examine Americans' immigration policy preferences and how it is affected by immigration framing. Her advisor is Government Professor Yusaku Horiuchi, the Mitsui Professor of Japanese Studies.

In addition to her QSS thesis, Genna's research also includes examining the relationship between uncertainty, immigration, and geographic mobility.

In the future, Genna hopes to attend graduate school to study more quantitative research methods.
