Jon Krosnick

Jon A. Krosnick is Frederic O. Glover Professor in Humanities and Social Sciences, Professor of Communication, Professor of Political Science, and (by courtesy) Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, and co-director of the Group on Best Practices in Science at the Stanford Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Krosnick conducts research on the psychology of attitudes, especially in the area of politics. He has studied how the American public's political attitudes are formed, change, and shape thinking and action and has explored the causes of people decisions about whether to vote, for whom to vote, whether to approve of the President ’ s performance, whether to take action to influence government policy-making on a specific issue, and much more. Another major focus of his research has been on questionnaire design and survey research methods.
