You have reached the homepage of David J. Hendry. I am an Assistant Professor in the Institut for Statskundskab (Department of Political Science) at Aarhus University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Illinois. My research is primarily motivated by a desire to understand how social interactions lead to broad social and political changes, employing theoretical perspectives from social and evolutionary psychology, among others. I examine questions concerning racial and ethnic politics, political communication, cultural evolution, social network theory, and statistical methodology, to name a few. My substantive research employs a variety of methodological approaches, combining laboratory, field, and survey experiments as well as observational and historical studies and computational simulations. In my methodological research, I focus primarily on event history methods.
