About

Marlette Jackson is a PhD candidate in the Political Science department at Stanford University.

More broadly, her research interests are in the field of comparative politics, and include the effects of religious and ethnic elites on state-building, the impact of gender on political behavior, and the role of group identity in mobilization and collective action.
