Eleanor received her PhD in Political Science from the University of Michigan in summer 2012. Her dissertation research focuses on tribes in Jordan and how tribal diversity affects the quality of municipal service provision. Specifically she examines how the presence (or absence) of social diversity impacts overall local services, electoral competition, patronage, and local socioeconomic outcomes. She hopes that such research will contribute to further understanding of governance in authoritarian countries as well as refine views regarding the relationship between diversity and public goods provision. In addition to her dissertation topic, she is broadly interested in the fields of identity politics, politics of the Arab world, and the politics of authoritarian/semi-democratic countries.
