Ryan Kennedy, PhD

University of Houston, Political Science, USA

Dr. Kennedy is an associate professor of political science, founding director of the UH Center for International and Comparative Studies (CICS) and a research associate with UH's Hobby Center for Public Policy.

His research spans a number of areas in comparative politics, international relations and American politics, including: democratization, computational social science, deliberation, energy and environment, post-Communist politics, and prediction models.

His work has been published in Science, the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and International Studies Quarterly, among others. His work has been sponsored by Fulbright, the Democracy Fund, and IARPA, among others.

At the University of Houston, Kennedy teaches undergraduate courses on statistics for political science, international energy politics, political terrorism, and will be developing a course on democratization (see "TEACHING" page for sample syllabi). At the graduate level, I teach seminars on democratization and machine learning. In 2013, I was honored with the Ross M. Lence Teaching Excellence Award in the social sciences from the University of Houston.
