Professor Jason Reifler


Professor of Political Science

I am Professor of Political Science at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom. I study political behaviour, with most of my time devoted to studying public opinion about foreign policy, correcting factual misperceptions held by citizens, and voting behaviour.  A more detailed explanation of my research–with links to my publications and working papers–can be found on my website.

I moved to Exeter in September 2013. I was previously on the faculty at Georgia State University (2007-2013) and Loyola University Chicago (2005-2007). 

I received a BA from Colby College and a PhD from Duke University.  Prior to grad school, I spent four years in Washington, DC working as an analyst at a polling firm.

I am married and have two daughters.  When I am not doing political science, I spend time playing with my family, cooking, making terrible noises on a guitar, or watching my favourite sports teams.
