Jon Green

I am currently 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. Beginning in July 2023 I will be an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Duke University. 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 how political elites talk about politics, democratic citizens' attitudes and behaviors, and interactions between these phenomena. My peer-reviewed work concerning public opinion and political behavior in the United States has appeared or is accepted to appear in journals such as Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Science Advances, the British Journal of Political Science, Political Behavior, Public Opinion Quarterly, Perspectives on Politics, and Political Research Quarterly.
