Andrew Menger conducts research on political behavior and how institutions and public policies affect various aspects of political behavior. He is working with Professors Andrew Reeves and Betsy Sinclair of the Political Science Department on “The American City” project which focuses on the extent to which local government is responsive to the interests of its constituents and the presence of disagreement in suburban life. In addition to his ongoing work on election policies, he is currently researching how education policies impact attitudes toward and trust in minority ethnic groups. He recently received his Ph.D. from Rice University. His research has been published in Public Administration Review, American Politics Research, and Political Science Research & Methods.
