Jonathan A. Chu
Welcome! I am Presidential Young Assistant Professor of International Affairs 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) programme.
My research sheds new light on 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 International Studies Quarterly, World Politics, Journal of Politics, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
My research has won grant support from the U.S. National Science Foundation and other private and public organizations. It also has been given the International Studies Association Finkelstein’s Best Paper Prize (international organization section), American Political Science Association’s Weber Best Paper Prize (religion and politics section), and the TESS Young Investigators Award (NSF-funded).
In addition to my research, I teach, consult, and give talks on issues of international affairs, democracy, public opinion, and survey methodology.
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
