John Marshall

Marshall is a doctoral student in the government department at Harvard. His research is focused on political economy and comparative politics, using the tools of game theory and statistics to address questions relating to the role of political information and economic and political inequalities in developed and developing contexts. He is particularly interested in the acquisition, provision and effects of political information. Marshall’s research asks how education and information affect political behavior, how politicians and media choose what information to provide to voters, how political parties target potential voters, and when voters choose to acquire political information.
