Jjh Small


I am an associate professor in the Department of Political Science and concurrent associate professor in the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Notre Dame. I received my Ph.D in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012 under the direction of Tom Carsey.

My areas of specialty are American politics and political methodology. My research agenda in American politics focuses on political representation, public policy diffusion, and state politics. My methodology interests include interpretation and communication of statistical analyses, network inference, and simulation.
