Molly Jackman is a PhD Candidate specializing in American Politics, with an emphasis on legislative institutions. Her dissertation, ”The Institutional Foundations of Majority Party Power,'' examines the mechanisms that underlie majority party power in legislatures. She utilizes a comparative approach and new data on state legislative institutions to explicitly test the effect that specific procedural rules have on legislative outputs. Jackman’s other research interests include quantitative methodology, political geography, and comparative politics. She expects to receive her PhD in political science from Stanford University in June 2013.
