Hello, my name is Liz Anusauskas and I am an Undergraduate Research Assistant (Class of 2021) at the Public Policy Center at UMass Dartmouth. I will be a sophomore at UMass Dartmouth this fall, majoring in Political Science and Economics. I love playing frisbee, but every Saturday morning you will find me at the local Farmers Market in Worcester. I am from the central Massachusetts town of Auburn, where I have lived most of my life.
I wanted to work at the PPC because I am hoping to gain a better understanding of the work that goes into local projects and how that translates into large-scale state and nationwide effects. I have been thinking about pursuing public policy after I complete my undergraduate degree and I am looking forward to working with the wonderful people I have met here thus far to gain more experience in the field.
