The Department of Political Science at Yale University would like to welcome John Henderson as a new member of our faculty.

John comes to Yale University from University of California, Berkeley, where he received his Ph.D in Political Science.  His current research focuses primarily on the consequences of polarization on representation and policymaking in the U.S., as well as the causes of participation and vote choice in congressional and presidential elections.

Additional research interests include sensitivity and matching analysis for instrumental variables and imperfectly randomized experiments, as well as dimensional scaling and analysis of text data.

Welcome to Yale.
