Research Interests

My mission as a researcher is to develop, test, publish my best ideas about complexity and emergence in political systems.  My central focus recently has been in developing the new field of neuropolitics, using tools of neuroscience to investigate core questions about our nature as a political animal.  While the neuropolitics work has emphasized the microscale of politics, investigating the role of biological processes involved in political behavior, I have also been pursuing research using computational models to study the formation of political parties and the emergence of ideology.
