Beginning September 2024, I will be an Associate Professor of Computational Social Science in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

My research uses game theory, computational tools and statistical methods to study political institutions and the behavior of government officials. My substantive interests include courts and policing, identity and discrimination, and corruption and special interest influence on politics. Some of this work has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics and the Economic Journal. I currently serve on the editorial board for the Journal of Law and Courts.

I was a co-founder of the American Political Science Association's Formal Theory Section, which organizes workshops and panels, provides teaching materials, and offers awards in recognition of outstanding research using formal models. I currently serve as its Vice President. I am also a member of the Academic Freedom Alliance, which advocates for academic freedom on university and college campuses.

I received a Ph.D. in political science and an M.A. in economics from the University of California, Berkeley. I also received an M.P.A. from Columbia University and a B.A. in politics and economics from Brandeis University.

Prior to my graduate training, I was a paralegal at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in New York, and interned at the U.S. Embassy in Norway.

I am an on-again, off-again user of social media. You can (sometimes) find me on Twitter at @ryan_hubert and on BlueSky at
