Reuben Kline

Me when I was fortunate enough to meet the late, great John Nash at Stony Brook's 24th annual Game Theory Festival (2013).

I am a political economist and behavioral scientist at Stony Brook University, where I am an associate professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for Behavioral Political Economy.

I use behavioral game theory, experimental social science, and other methods to study fairness and social preferences, climate change mitigation behavior, behavioral ethics, public opinion, and voting.

My work has been published in Nature Climate Change, Nature Human Behaviour, the Journal of Politics, Climatic Change, Public Opinion Quarterly, and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, as well as other outlets.

My research has been featured in the Economist, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the CBC.

I am also the editor of the newsletter for APSA's organized section on Experimental Research. We are always looking for great content, so please contact me at reuben.kline[at]
