Jonathan A. Chu
Welcome to my web page! I'm a political scientist who specializes in behavioral approaches to understanding democracy, governance, identity/norms, and foreign policy. I'm also an expert in survey and experimental methodology.
Currently, I'm an Assistant Professor of International Affairs at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. Previously, I was a lecturer at Stanford University and a postdoctoral fellow at Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania.
My work appears in peer-reviewed publications such as the International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Experimental Political Science, Journal of Politics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and World Politics, and has earned grant funding from the National Science Foundation, Qualtrics, and the U.S. Department of Defense.
Outside the academy, I have consulted for agencies like USAID. I am also a co-founder of CivicPulse, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering U.S. local governments through enabling high quality polling of their leaders.
I received a B.A. in Political Science from UC San Diego, and a Ph.D. also in political science from Stanford University. Work aside, you can find me on the constant look out for good places to hike, eat, and listen to classical music.
