Miki Caul Kittilson joined the ASU faculty in fall 2004. Her BA is from Arizona State University, and PhD is from University of California Irvine. One current project, funded by the National Science Foundation, examines gender equality on high courts around the world (co-authored with Valerie Hoekstra (ASU), Maria Escobar-Lemmon (Texas A&M) and Alice Kang (University of Nebraska). In a second project (co-authored with Magda Hinojosa and funded by USAID), Kittilson examines the effects of gender quotas and women's descriptive representation for mass-level engagement with the democratic process. Her more recent book (co-authored with Leslie Schwindt-Bayer), The Gendered Effects of Electoral Institutions: Political Engagement and Participation, was published by Oxford University Press in the Comparative Politics Series. She has also published articles in journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, International Organization, Comparative Political Studies, Politics, Groups and Identities, Perspectives on Politics, Party Politics, Political Behavior and Politics & Gender.
