Alexander Agadjanian

Welcome! My name's Alexander, I’m a political science Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley. I study political psychology, political behavior, and race, largely in the realm of American politics. My research currently focuses on the nature, causes, and consequences of partisanship, elite rhetoric, racial fluidity, and racial attitudes. For data, I mostly use original survey experiments and public surveys, and sometimes integrate election returns, textual data, and cast vote records.

My research and analysis has appeared or is forthcoming in publications like the Quarterly Journal of Political Science, Political Behavior, Political Communication, and Public Opinion Quarterly, and outlets like the New York Times, Washington Post, New York Magazine, Slate Magazine, CNN, FiveThirtyEight, and NBC News.
