Christopher Eddy is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science and a Bilinski Fellow at the University of South Carolina. He received his B.A. in Political Science and English Literature from Marshall University in 2017. His research incorporates critical insights from the fields of American Politics, Public Policy, and Public Administration. Focusing on representation, environmental policy, and representative bureaucracy, he is primarily interested in 1) how descriptive (passive), substantive (active) , and symbolic representation influence the relationship between citizens and bureaucratic organizations, and 2) how representation is used as a mechanism for enhancing democratic outcomes within the administrative state.
