Lisa A. Bryant, Ph.D.

Department of Political Science

California State University, Fresno

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at California State University, Fresno.

My research focuses on election administration, political behavior, public opinion, gender and politics, and research methods, specifically survey and experimental research.

My teaching experience includes: intro to American politics and institutions, public opinion and political behavior, campaigns and elections, political psychology, public policy making, state and local politics, and both undergraduate and graduate research methods and analysis.

I am currently working on research regarding the role of parenthood and political agendas of lawmakers, public opinion research on fraud in elections and evaluations of local election officials, and observational research on how election reforms impact who votes and how ballots are cast, as well as a variety of other projects. My research includes a variety of methods, with a focus on experimental and survey research. I am also on the research advisory board for the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).

I've been published in both academic journals and in the mainstream press. I'm always happy to talk to the press about elections and election administration, including the voter behavior and turnout in elections, or any other topics related to my research.

In 2019, I was awarded the Provost's Promising New Faculty Award.
