Hanna K. Brant


I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at SUNY Geneseo. Prior to joining the faculty at Geneseo, I earned my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Missouri with concentrations in American politics and public administration. 


My research examines how congressional staffers supplement congressional capacity to draft legislation and conduct oversight, the contours of political careers of members of Congress, and the impact of women in legislatures. My work has been supported by the Dirksen Congressional Center and the Center for Effective Lawmaking and is published or forthcoming in journals such as Congress & the Presidency, Journal of Women, Politics & Policy, and Social Science Quarterly. 

I am originally from Indiana and completed a bachelors at Indiana State University in Political Science with minors in Women's Studies and Civic Leadership.
