Thanks for visiting my website. I am a political science Ph.D. candidate at the University of Georgia hoping to graduate in 2020. I am a scholar of both institutions (namely Congress and the presidency) and political behavior, and focus on where the two scholarly branches intersect. I received by Masters in Political Science from the University of Georgia in May 2017, and have an undergraduate degree in communications from a small school in Johannesburg, South Africa.

I have worked with closely with professors in their work on Congress and on political behavior and invite you to look at or download my CV for a fuller explanation. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me on simonwillo [at] gmail [dot] com.

Before beginning my masters I worked as a political journalist. I moved to the US with my husband in 2011 and we settled in Georgia in 2013 where my African blood enjoys the climate.
