Jake M. Grumbach
I’m a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley. Beginning fall of 2018 I will be a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton University.
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, and the politics of climate change. 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. Outside of academia, I’m a nerd for 70s funk/soul and 90s hip hop.
Song I'm listening to right now: Sag War Fare - "Girl! You Better Change"
