Varian Collegiate Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan and Chair of the National Research Council’s Roundtable on the Application of Behavioral and Social Science. His publications include Uninformed: Why People Seem to Know So Little about Politics and What We Can Do about It and The Democratic Dilemma: Can Citizens Learn What They Need to Know?
