Limor Peer, PhD is Associate Director for Research at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies (ISPS) at Yale University, where she oversees research infrastructure and communication. At ISPS, she led the creation of a specialized research data archive (the ISPS Data Archive), a digital repository for research produced by scholars affiliated with ISPS with a focus on experimental design and methods. She is responsible for establishing Archive policies and for designing a model workflow for sharing and preserving research data that implements the ideals of scientific reproducibility and transparency. Peer co-founded Curation for Reproducibility (CURE),  a consortium of social science data archives at Yale, Cornell, and the University of  North Carolina, promoting practices that facilitate the digital preservation of the evidence base necessary for future understanding, evaluation, and reproducibility of scientific claims. She sits on the board of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research and serves on a number of advisory and task force groups working on data curation and research transparency. At Yale, she is involved in campus-wide efforts relating to research data management, sharing, and preservation, and has spearheaded policy development on these issues. She is currently serving as a Research and Data Specialist at the Office of the Provost.

Prior to joining ISPS, Peer was Research Director at Northwestern University’s Media Management Center and Readership Institute, which focuses on applied research primarily in the areas of media audience, content, and management strategy. At Northwestern University, she was also Associate Professor (clinical) at the Medill School of Journalism and held a courtesy appointment in the Department of Communication Studies. Her research interests include the media’s role in democracy and in the public opinion process. She has taught courses on communication theory, public opinion, media and society, the future of the media, and statistics for journalists.

Peer received a Ph.D. and M.A. in Communication Studies from Northwestern University and a B.A.  in Political Science from Tel-Aviv University.
