Jamie Monogan BITSS CatalystPolitical Science

Jamie Monogan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Georgia. After completing his B.A. in political science at the University of South Carolina in 2003, he attended the University of North Carolina where he earned his M.A. in 2005 and Ph.D. in 2010. He then worked as a visiting assistant professor for the Center for Applied Statistics at Washington University in St. Louis until he began work at UGA in 2011.

Jamie’s research focuses on American state politics and policy, as well as political methodology. In his substantive research on state politics, his published work investigates the causes of policy choices in the areas of immigration, health care, and the environment. As a political methodologist, he has worked to demonstrate the usefulness of preregistering studies in Political Science. In particular, his published work includes studies of the 2010 and 2012 U.S. congressional elections that were preregistered before the votes were counted. Jamie believes that both preregistration and sharing replication information are valuable tools for social scientific research.
