Welcome! My name is Adam Ramey and I am Associate Professor of Political Science (with tenure; effective September 1, 2018) at New York University Abu Dhabi.
I received my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Rochester in 2010. I specialize in American politics, political methodology, and formal theory. My research focuses on the applications of cutting-edge methodologies to the study of legislative and electoral behavior. In my recent book, More Than a Feeling: Personality Polarization and the Transformation of the U.S. Congress (University of Chicago Press, 2017), my coauthors and I develop text-based methods for measuring legislator personality from 1996-present. Using these measures, we examine how legislator personality traits impact the sorts of decisions they make, even after accounting for party and ideological preferences.
