Jamil Scott is an assistant professor in the Department of Government at Georgetown University.

Her research interests lie in the areas of political behavior, political representation, race and ethnicity politics, and gender politics. She seeks to explain individual’s motivations to participate in political activities in conventional ways, particularly as candidates and officeholders, as well as in unconventional ways, like protest and political engagement via social media. Moreover, she examines the behaviors of officeholders within office as a means of understanding political representation and behaviors within institutions, such as legislatures.
