Event description: 

Sean Gailmard is a Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Gailmard studies how principal-agent problems in politics affect the structure and development of political institutions. From this perspective, his research attempts to understand the strategic foundations of American political institutions; expertise and political responsiveness in the bureaucracy; historical development of the American executive branch; congressional control of bureaucratic discretion; the internal organization of the U.S. Congress; and electoral accountability. He has also studied models of collective decision making in laboratory experiments
