May 2, 2019

Professor Gregory Huber has been appointed as chair of the Department of Political Science. His term will be for three years, effective July 1, 2019.   He follows Professor Steven Wilkinson in this important leadership position.

Gregory Huber, Ph.D., Princeton University 2001, is the Forst Family Professor of Political Science, a resident fellow of the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, Associate Director of the Center for the Study of American Politics, and founding director of the ISPS Behavioral Research Lab. 

In addition, he is an associate editor of the Quarterly Journal of Political Science and has served on the National Science Foundation review panel for support of political science research.

His research focuses on American Politics, and is motivated by a desire to understand how the interactions among the mass public and elites, political institutions, and policies explain important outcomes.  He is centrally interested in how individuals think about the government, how these attitudes are shaped by government action and political campaigns, and how those beliefs in turn shape citizens’ political activities and government policy.

Prior to joining the faculty at Yale, he held the Robert Hartley fellowship in Governmental Studies at the Brookings Institution.

Congratulations Professor Huber.
