My name is Marcy Shieh. I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte during the 2023-2024 school year. Starting August 2024, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Miami University in Ohio.

I study American politics with a concentration in judicial politics. My research interests include state supreme courts, federal courts, and the criminal justice system more broadly. I apply methods, such as text analysis and survey experiments, to conduct my work. My work has been published or is forthcoming in Social Science Quarterly, Open Judicial Politics, and the Research Handbook of Judicial Politics.

I received my PhD in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2023. I graduated from the University of California, Davis with a BA in political science and philosophy with a minor in statistics in 2014. Prior to graduate school, I worked as a technical project coordinator at a healthcare policy firm.

In my spare time, I like hanging out with my cat, eating and cooking food, and watching films and television.
