Lucas Dolan conducts research at the juncture of international relations and contentious politics. In his dissertation, he explores the role of transnational social networks in the spread, mobilization, and success of radical right-wing populist movements in Europe and the United States. Dolan is also interested in social theory, philosophy of science, relational sociology, and their applications to international studies.

His writings have appeared at International Studies Quarterly, Foreign Policy, Public Seminar, and Duck of Minerva.

During the course of his graduate studies, Dolan has taught courses at SIS, at George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs, and at the DC Central Correctional Facility through Georgetown University's Prison Scholars Program.

He has held affiliations with the Illiberalism Studies Program at George Washington University, the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR), Université Libre de Bruxelles (CEVIPOL), the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies, Kathryn Davis Fellow for Peace at the Middlebury College and the American University Center for Latin American and Latino Studies.
