me3Thanks for visiting my page!

I am Brian Falb Harrison (Ph.D. Northwestern University) and I’m a political scientist, professor, and author. I am a Visiting Fellow at Yale University (ISPS) and an Affiliated Scholar at NYU; previously, I was Visiting Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University (2013-2014).

My research focuses on the effects of identity on public opinion and political behavior in U.S. Politics, particularly surrounding attitudes and behaviors about LGBT rights and marriage equality. I am also interested in partisanship and its effects, polarization, voting behavior, and experimental design.

My work has been cited by the New York Times,, and National Public Radio and published in academic outlets like Political Behavior, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Social Science Quarterly. I currently have a book under contract with Yale University Press.
