Tyler Reny studies the causes and consequences of outgroup attitudes in politics. While at Washington University, he will be working with Professors Betsy Sinclair and Andrew Reeves in the Suburban, Urban, and Rural Governments and Elections (SURGE) Lab analyzing the extent to which local governments are responsive to the interests of constituents. He is also working on a variety of other projects on immigration attitudes in the United States and Europe, outgroup attitudes and COVID-19, and the spillover of partisanship into the distribution of culture and entertainment in the United States. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in political science from Skidmore College, a Ph.D. in political science from UCLA, and has published in the American Political Science Review, British Journal of Political Science, Public Opinion Quarterly, Comparative Political Studies, and Political Psychology, among others.
