Lillian Frost is a Ph.D. student at The George Washington University, where her research focuses on citizenship, nationalism, and political identity. Her dissertation project aims to explain variations in states' citizenship policies toward particular groups over time, including women and ethnic groups. Currently, she is exploring these topics looking at the case of Jordan from 1950–2015 using process tracing, archival research, and semi-structured interviews. In addition, she has been working on research with Dr. Nathan Jensen using regression analysis to examine the effects of large business tax incentives offered by U.S. counties on local inequality rates and government spending.
