lab website

Jon is a political scientist studying the ways in which ideas matter for politics at the individual and elite levels. This involves research using a combination of survey, text, and network-analytic methods to explore research areas such as the social construction of ideological belief systems, the dynamics of vote choice in primary elections, and why political amateurs run for office. Before joining the Lazer Lab at the Northeastern University Network Science Institute, Jon completed his Ph.D. at Ohio State University. His peer-reviewed work has appeared in Science, Science Advances, Perspectives on Politics, Political Research Quarterly, Electoral Studies, and The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics.
