Susanne Wengle is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. Wengle's main research interests concern the politics of markets regulations; her past research examines how particular regulations function and how they evolve, what “politics” make them possible, and also how their effects change the political conditions in which they were formulated. The empirical focus of Wengle's current project is agriculture and food production in Russia and the US, which aims to understand how regulatory regimes shape food systems.
