Meredith's research at CNS-UCSB focuses on the communication of nanotechnologies in news media, and its effect on public attitudes. As a political psychologist, Meredith is especially interested in understanding the impact of informational frames and comparisons disseminated by the media on the stability and strength of individual attitudes toward nanotechnologies. Before pursing her Ph.D at UCSB, Meredith worked as an assistant production coordinator at the Associated Press Television News station in London, England. Meredith has a master's degree from Purdue University and a bachelor's degree from Whittier College, both in political science.
