Hi, I'm MaryClare Roche, PhD candidate at the University of Rochester. Welcome to my website.
A Little About Myself.
I am a PhD candidate at the University of Rochester studying Political Science. I specialize in comparative politics and formal theory. I'm interested in the use of democratic institutions in non-democratic regimes. Specifically, my dissertation work looks at how these institutions facilitate cooperation or competition among opposition factions using both formal theoretic and statistical models. Projects outside my dissertation work focus on formal models of candidate motivations in elections.
