About

Professor Bryan’s research and teaching interests include the federal judiciary, especially the US Supreme Court, judicial decision-making, and quantitative methodology. Her research questions, fundamentally, how justices make decisions under various internal and external constraints. She is especially interested in the effect of public opinion on judicial decision-making, how the Supreme Court sets its agenda, and measuring legal development and jurisprudence. Her work has appeared in Political Research Quarterly, American Politics Research, and Justice System Journal.
