The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) has awarded a graduate research fellowship to University of Michigan doctoral student Marty Davidson

The program recruits high-potential, early-career scientists and engineers and supports their graduate research training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Davidson is interested in Political Representation, Behavior within Institutions, Race and Ethnic Politics, and the United States Death Penalty. His first co-authored book entitled Deadly Justice: A Statistical Portrait of Death Penalty is forthcoming through Oxford University Press.
