Jake M. Grumbach
I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Washington. I received my PhD from UC Berkeley in spring of 2018 and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton.
I study the political economy of the United States. I'm broadly interested in the politics of race, business and labor, political and economic inequality, American federalism, health policy, climate change, and statistical methods. Check out my publications and working papers. My book project investigates the causes and consequences of the nationalization of state politics since the 1970s.
Before graduate school, I earned a B.A. from Columbia University and worked as a public health researcher. Outside of academia, I’m a nerd for 70s funk/soul and 90s hip hop.
