Hello, I am Joe Zamadics. I am a political science PhD candidate at the University of Colorado with a focus in American politics and political methodology. Specifically, my dissertation focuses on issue salience in lawmaking. By analyzing state newspaper content, I am able to link trends in issue salience to lawmaker actions and policy outcomes.
I am originally from West Chester, PA which is 30 minutes outside the city of Philadelphia. I graduated from Susquehanna University in 2012 with a B.S. in Economics. I obtained an M.A. in political science from the University of Colorado in 2014.
