Adam Thal


I am a Postdoctoral Associate in Policy Research at Yale University’s Institution for Social and Policy Studies. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Politics at Princeton University in the fall of 2017.

I use surveys and experiments to study the political behavior of groups who hold power in the United States, including affluent Americans and political elites. My research was awarded the best dissertation on political psychology by the American Political Science Association in 2018. My work has also been published in the American Journal of Political SciencePolitical Behavior, and Public Opinion Quarterly.
