Elizabeth Dorssom | CSF Redondo Union HS

My name is Elizabeth Dorssom. I am a Political Science Ph.D. candidate at the University of Missouri and a 2020-2021 Humane Studies Fellow through the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University. My subfields are American Politics, and Public Policy and Administration.

I earned a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Chatham University and a Master of Public Administration in Public Sector Management and Leadership from California State University-Northridge. I am a former Oskar Morgenstern Fellow through the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

My research focuses on the impact of resources on politics and policy. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how resources such as information, institutionalization, and professionalism impact policy adoption and feedback. I’m exploring the influence of such resources at the Congressional and state legislative level by examining legislative position-taking as well as legislative outputs such as sunset provisions.

I use a variety of methods in my research, including both qualitative methods – such as interviews, case study research, and text analysis – and quantitative methods, such as survey and field experiments.

My research has been supported by the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University, the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center at the University of Oklahoma, the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy at the University of Missouri, the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University, and the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.
