Dr. Ciuk earned his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 2011. His research interests include public opinion, voting behavior, political cognition, experiments in the social sciences, and quantitative methods of analysis. Some of professor Ciuk's recent research examines the link between core values and political attitudes, the interaction between information and partisan agreement, and the extent to which rationalization processes affect the way members of the mass public perceive political candidates.
