Melissa A. Rendsburg is a Master's degree candidate in the Department of Political Science—United Nations and Global Policy (UNMA) program at Rutgers University, New Jersey, U.S.A. Melissa's research focuses on the intersection of politics and religion as she uses the various lenses of political, cultural, philosophical, and religious beliefs to examine how these forces shape people's lives, their worldviews, and their moral and ethical decisions. Melissa believes that by having a deeper understanding of what motivates a particular group, politically and spiritually, we can see how people's decision-making processes are shaped. From this information, new out-of-the-box approaches to public policy can be developed.
