Jon Green

I am a senior research scientist at Northeastern University’s Network Science Institute and a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science, with focuses in American Politics and Political Methodology, from the Ohio State University in June 2020. My primary research agenda concerns the study of ideological belief systems, including how they are structured at an individual level and how they are constructed at a system level. My peer-reviewed work concerning public opinion and political behavior in the United States has appeared in journals such as Science Advances, Perspectives on Politics, and Political Research Quarterly.

My CV can be found here.
