David M. Glick

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Boston University.  My primary research and teaching interests include political institutions – especially courts, public opinion about institutions, learning and decision making, policy diffusion, law and regulation. I also co-developed and teach a course about all of the politics, policy, and social science in HBO’s the Wire.  My work has appeared (or will be appearing soon) in the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, the Quarterly Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Law, Economics and Organization, Political Behavior, Public Opinion Quarterly, and American Politics Research.  I am currently studying the interaction of public opinion, the Supreme Court, and major recent cases using data from panel surveys that I collected with my BU colleague Dino Christenson. In a second newish project, I am studying urban politics and policy via a survey of mayors with my colleague Katie Einstein.

I grew up near Boston. Before graduate school at Princeton I was an undergraduate at Williams College and worked in Cambridge for two years as a strategy consultant with the Monitor Group. I also spent two years as a fellow at the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy at Dartmouth. I spend much of my free time staying active, often with my dog Zoe, and doing amateur home improvement projects. I  play basketball, soccer, and softball. I also ski, golf, and ride my bike whenever I can – which is very rarely.
