Jonathan A. Chu
Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in International Affairs and Presidential Young Professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. I am also the chair of the Master in International Affairs (MIA) program at the LKY School.
I research how global opinion, identity, and norms impact the politics of war, democracy, and great power politics. My work appears in peer-reviewed publications such as the International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Experimental Political Science, Journal of Politics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and World Politics, and has earned grant funding from a variety of private and public institutions, like Qualtrics and the US National Science Foundation.
Outside the academy, I consult on issues of international affairs, public opinion, and survey methodology. I also co-founded CivicPulse, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering local governments in part 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. I completed my postdoctoral work at Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania. Work aside, you can find me looking for good places to hike, eat, and listen to classical music.
