Meet Naomi Nashell Nubin-Sellers, 2018 APSA Minority Fellowship Program Recipient

Naomi Nashell Nubin-Sellers is a PhD student at the University of Houston in the department of political science. Her broad research interests are in the fields of American politics and public policy, with an emphasis on incorporating intersectionality into our current understanding of the political process, minority representation, and minority political behavior. Naomi is currently researching how intersectionality affects support for redistribution policies and whether legislative infrastructure affects how often African American female candidates run for office in state legislatures. She earned a BS in administration of justice and political science and an MPA, both from Texas Southern University, where she also worked as a research assistant. Naomi is excited to pursue an academic career where she can successfully teach and continue to pursue her research agenda.
