You have reached the homepage of David J. Hendry. I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for the Study of American Politics in the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Illinois in 2012. My research interests span various subfields of political science, and I am primarily motivated by a desire to understand how social interactions lead to broad social and political changes. Within this broad rubric, I examine racial and ethnic politics in the United States, cultural evolution, statistical methodology, and social network theory, to name but 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.
Here you will find links to my research and teaching pages, as well as my curriculum vitae.
