Molly Gibbons

2021-2022 CSDP Undergraduate Research Fellow

Molly Gibbons is a senior in the School for Public and International Affairs pursuing the law and legal systems track. 

Her first junior research paper focused on the obstructionist influences of partisanship on infrastructure and her second the extra-legal contours of campaign finance regulation.  Her senior thesis will be an expansion of her junior paper on campaign finance, focusing on the ways cross-campaign agreements, internal campaign behaviors, state parties, public advocacy behavior, and corporate shareholder agreements reshape campaign finance without reshaping the legal landscape that controls it.  Most recently Molly interned with the Rodel Fellowship, a public leadership fellowship that emphasizes bipartisanship and civility in American government.
