Jeremy M. Ladd, PhD (Queen's); MA (Western); MA (Western); HBA (Toronto)
I am an Assistant Teaching Professor of Political Science at Penn State University. My research focuses on political parties in emerging democracies and hybrid regimes, and in particular on how non-incumbent parties in these contexts successfully or unsuccessfully compete with incumbents.
My research is broadly comparative in scope, but is comprised of several case studies with which I have nuanced familiarity. These are the National League for Democracy in Burma/Myanmar, the Cambodia National Rescue Party in Cambodia, and Yabloko and "Team Navalny" in the Russian Federation.
My research is mixed-methods in nature, utilizing interviews, focus groups, surveys, and "big data".
