David Konisky

From Indiana Univ.:

I am an Associate Professor at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University, where I am also a Faculty Affiliate at the Ostrom Workshop and the Department of Political Science.

My research focuses on American politics and public policy, with particular emphasis on regulation, environmental politics and policy, state politics, and public opinion. My work is primarily motivated by an interest in understanding how political institutions affect public policy implementation across space and time. In particular, I focus on the incentives (often unintended) that policies create for bureaucrats and other government actors in implementing policy. This interest extends to studying what people expect and desire out of government policy and performance. Substantively, I study these subjects primarily in the context of environmental and energy policy.
