Katie Clayton will be a visiting scholar at the Democracy Center in October 2022. She is a PhD candidate at Stanford studying American politics and comparative politics. Her research examines political behavior and survey methodology, with particular focus on public opinion about democracy, identity, and immigration. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Political Science Research and Methods, and Political Behavior, among others, and her book, Campus Diversity: The Hidden Consensus (co-authored with John Carey and Yusaku Horiuchi), was published in 2020 at Cambridge University Press. Katie’s dissertation project examines how the public responds to democratic backsliding as it dynamically unfolds.
