Antoine Yoshinaka

Assistant Professor
Department of Government

  • Professor Yoshinaka's research examines how institutions and the preferences of political actors influence political outcomes. Some of his recent work on congressional redistricting, for instance, examines the various ways in which partisan mapmakers strategically allocate uncertainty across districts.

    He is currently finishing a book manuscript on the causes and consequences of legislative party switching in the United States, the first book length treatment on the topic.

    Professor Yoshinaka teaches courses in American politics, specifically on Congress, campaigns and elections, as well as courses in quantitative methodology.
