Georgia Kernell’s research interests include political parties, political behavior, European politics, comparative democratic institutions, and research methodology. She received her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2008, and spent the 2008-2009 academic year as a postdoc in the Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism. She is currently revising her dissertation into a book, in which she examines how party organization affects electoral success in parliamentary systems. Georgia is also working on several projects that examine the institutions that regulate party diversity, the normative implications of party organizations for representation, and how political information shapes consumer sentiment.
