Andrew Kelly has been selected as the Ambrose Monell Foundation Funded Fellowship in Technology and Democracy.

Andrew Kelly is the Patrick Henry Fellow in the Department of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University.  Kelly's dissertation, “Entering the New Frontier: The Origins and Development of Scientific Capacity in the United States and Great Britain,” explores the role of exchanges of scientific expertise and the effect on expanding state capacity in the United States and Great Britain. His fellowship will be supported by the Monell Foundation and is a perfect example of how the Miller Center along with Monell are contributing to a fast-growing new field that seeks to shed light on the co-evolution of technology and democracy.

Kelly is currently working on a new project that examines the growth of private insurance plans within Medicare, and how the public-private partnerships that developed have impacted policy change over time.

Fellowship year: 2012

Mentor: Gerald Berk, University of Oregon
