Marc Jacob is a postdoctoral fellow with the Polarization Research Lab, a cross-university lab between Stanford, Dartmouth, and UPenn. His research interests are broadly focused on comparative politics, political economy, and political behavior. Marc uses experimental and causal inference research designs, as well as conducts comparative case studies, to examine the conditions under which citizens constrain politicians in their attempts to undermine democratic institutions. While he primarily focuses on European democracies, some of his work also covers the United States.
