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 mostly teach undergraduate law and courts classes and will soon be teaching a new class about the political science and policy in HBO’s the Wire.  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 the consequences of conspiracy theories on confidence in government 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.
