Chris Tausanovitch received his PhD from Stanford University in 2013 and is currently an Assistant Professor of political science at UCLA.

His areas of research are Representation, American Politics, Public Opinion, Congress, and Methodology. In particular, he is interested in understanding how citizens provide incentives for legislative position taking and how legislators respond to those incentives. In other words, he studies the mechanics of democratic representation.

In 2012 Professor Tausanovitch worked on the Senate Finance Committee as an American Political Science Association Congressional Fellow.
