About

Thanks for visiting my site. I’m Will Massengill, a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Ohio State University. My dissertation includes several papers on corporate political behavior in American legislatures. Currently, I’m very interested in how corporate mergers are transforming the American political system. I am also interested in American political development and am involved in research on legislative-executive relations in the Jefferson presidency, and I have published work on voting behavior in presidential elections.

Before graduate school, I taught high school and tutored college students in South Carolina and Florida. Outside of work, I enjoy listening to music, reading nonfiction (in particular, politics, history, and philosophy), spending time with friends and family, and exploring midwestern America with my wife.
