Jonathan A. Chu
Welcome to my web page! I'm a political scientist who specializes in behavioral approaches to understanding democracy, identity/norms, foreign policy, and international institutions. 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 currently serve as the Director of Operations at CivicPulse, a nonprofit organization that I co-founded dedicating to empowering local governments. I have also taught original courses as lecturer at Stanford University and the University of Pennsylvania.
I'm now based in Stanford University, where I'm a lecturer for the Thinking Matters Program and an affiliated scholar at the Bill Lane Center. Previously, I was 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.
