I (Jason Morgan) am a Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science department at The Ohio State University. Prior to entering the graduate program at OSU, I earned an M.A. in political science from Boston College with concentrations in comparative politics and international relations. I have also taken graduate courses at Brown University and earned a B.A. in economics and German studies from Lewis & Clark College in 1999. Between undergraduate and graduate school, I worked as an analyst for Johnson Reid, a small consultancy specializing in land use economics and headquartered in Portland, Oregon.
My substantive interests include comparative politics, institutions, and political economy, with a focus on the process of post-communist economic and social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe. I also have extensive interests in statistical methodology including causal inference, network analysis, event history, natural experiments, and multi-level modeling.
