Jason Todd

Jason Douglas Todd is a PhD candidate whose work spans the fields of American and comparative politics to examine how political institutions shape the law, whether that be through the legislators who make it or the judges who interpret it. His primary research agenda concerns the U.S. Supreme Court and its role atop the federal judicial hierarchy, which he approaches through the lens of the Court’s case selection process. Other lines of work consider legal citation networks, polarization in judicial opinions, judicial confirmations, state legislative committees, and responsiveness in authoritarian legislatures.
