Dr. Christine S. Lipsmeyer- Associate Professor, Texas A&M University

Dr. Lipsmeyer’s research is at the intersection of public policy, political economy, and political institutions. She is interested in questions abut government behavior and responsibility, as well as the relationship between governments and their supporters. At the center of her work is how political and economic contexts influence the policy behavior of governments and the policy preferences of individuals across countries and time.

He has published a variety of manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, including the American Journal of Political Science, Armed Forces and Society, the British Journal of Political Science, Electoral Studies, the Journal of Politics, and Political Behavior. He is an active reviewer of manuscripts, and currently serves on the editorial boards of the American Journal of Political Science, Electoral Studies, and Political Science Research and Methods.
