cadolph at uw dot edu

I am an associate professor of political science, adjunct associate professor of statistics, and core faculty member of the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Substantive Interests

My political economy and comparative politics research concerns the ways political institutions and interests jointly determine the public policies that shape our lives, including monetary policy, fiscal policy, trade policy, and health policy. I am particularly interested in how bureaucratic and leadership career incentives influence elite behavior and policy making.

Methodological interests

I specialize in the visual display of scientific information, particularly the illustration of substantive findings from statistical models. I’m also interested in statistical inference using data whose logical bounds enable or improve estimation, as in the study of political rank, compositional data like budgets and trade portfolios, and ecological inference.

Other activities

I serve as an expert witness on the use of statistical methods to resolve contested elections. I also consult on matters relating to statistical methodology and data visualization.
