Welcome! My name is Brady Dauzat and I'm a third year Political Science PhD student at Emory University. I am currently at The University of Chicago Law School for the 2017 - 2018 academic year as part of a pre-doctoral program to earn a Masters in Legal Studies degree before returning to Emory. My main research area is judicial politics, and I focus on comparative legal institutions, and comparative law and development. In particular, I am interested in how political, resource, and informational constraints that legal systems face impact legal actors, and how this in turn affects legal development and the broader political and economic institutions that courts are embedded in. My research uses a variety of tools in order to explore this question, including applied statistics and formal theory.
