FIONA SHEN BAYH
Assistant Professor of Government
William & Mary
I am an Assistant Professor of Government at William & Mary where I also serve as a faculty affiliate of the Global Research Institute and the Data Science program. Additionally, I am a research affiliate of the Centre on Law and Social Transformations at the University of Bergen. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan, earned my PhD and MA in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley, and my BA in Economics from Vassar College.
I study the politics of authoritarian regimes, specifically the legal and judicial instruments of power. My book project Undue Process examines these themes in the context of sub-Saharan Africa.
In other works, I examine the challenges of promoting access to equitable justice. My research draws on a mixed-methods approach that combines qualitative and quantitative analyses.
My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Institute of International Studies, and the Global Research Institute. My work has been published in World Politics.
