Charlotte Hill, PhD

Researcher, UC Berkeley

I’m a policy analyst trained in political science methods. I earned my Ph.D. at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, where I also received my master’s degree. My research explores how structural reforms might improve American democracy, especially for the types of people who’ve historically been shut out of the process.

I believe every American deserves an equal opportunity to influence policy. To that end, I recently sat on the national boards of FairVote, a leading election reform organization, and RepresentUs, a nationwide, bipartisan anti-corruption campaign. Both of these groups aim to help America’s policy process better serve the interests of all Americans, not just those of the wealthy and powerful. I also previously served on the San Francisco Elections Commission, which oversees local elections.
