The post-doctoral fellow at DISM, Kyle studies American politics with a specialization in campaigns & elections, voting behavior, and public opinion.
He recently completed a Ph.D. in Government at The University of Texas at Austin, where he was a graduate student affiliate at the Irma Rangel Public Policy Institute. Prior to joining DISM, Kyle was a predoctoral research fellow at The Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy at Fordham University.
Kyle studies how data and technological advancements influence who participates in politics and how they participate. Using a unique combination of data sources that link voter files, proprietary campaign records, original surveys, and field experiments, his research investigates how targeted policy information drives some individuals away from electoral politics, while motivating non-electoral engagement such as political consumerism.
