Brief Bio:
Meg Rubado joined the Levin faculty in Fall 2016 after completing her doctorate in Political Science at Temple University. Her dissertation examined how and why local governments cooperate with one another for service provision. Dr. Rubado was inspired to study the topic and pursue a PhD after working for several years as a newspaper reporter at The Syracuse Post-Standard, where she covered City Hall, the Syracuse City School District, Onondaga County government, crime and safety, among other beats. She specializes in the study of state and local politics in the United States, environmental issues, and urban service provision. Her work has appeared in Policy Sciences, Public Administration Review, Urban Affairs Review, State and Local Government Review, Publius: The Journal of Federalism, and the CQ Press Guide to Urban Politics and Policy in the United States.
