Christopher T. Kenny

Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Government, Harvard University

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Government, studying American Politics and Political Methodology. I am currently teaching a course on redistricting entitled “Drawing Democracies,” aimed at Harvard college sophomores. My substantive focus is on redistricting and gerrymandering. I work on open source R tools for analyzing redistricting and voting rights in context. I am affiliated with the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University, the Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and the Algorithm-Assisted Redistricting Methodology (ALARM) Project. In 2022, I was a fellow at the Election Law Clinic at Harvard Law School.
