Dr Zachary Greene



Personal statement

I joined the faculty in 2015 as a Chancellor's Fellow. Before moving to Scotland, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher on the C2 project as a part of the SFB 884 "Political Economy of Reforms" research centre at the University of Mannheim from Summer 2012 to 2015. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Iowa in 2012. 

My research explores the causes and consequences of intra-party politics for elections, government behaviour and public policy. My personal website contains additional information regarding my recent publications, replication datasets and ongoing projects.
