Jonathan A. Chu
Welcome to my web page! I'm a political scientist who specializes in public opinion and political behavior in areas of democracy and foreign policy. I'm also an expert in survey and experimental methodology.
My research appears in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and Journal of Experimental Political Science, and has earned grant funding from the NSF, Qualtrics, and the U.S. Department of Defense. My work has also received the Finkelstein Paper Prize (International Studies Association) and Weber Paper Award (Religion & Politics Section, American Political Science Association).
Beyond research, I have taught original courses in international relations and have also applied my expertise in consulting projects with the National Opinion Research Council, USAID, and W. W. Norton Press. I was previously the Survey Manager at the Stanford Laboratory of the Study of American Values, and I'm currently the Director of Operations at CivicPulse, a non-profit organization that polls local government officials across the United States.
I'm now a Postdoctoral Fellow at Perry World House and the Department of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania. I received a B.A. in Political Science from UC San Diego, and a Ph.D. also in political science from Stanford University.
