Bryce Corrigan



I am Lecturer in the Government Department at Cornell University. I received my BA from the University of Chicago, my MS from Carnegie Mellon University, and my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. My research interests are in statistical methodology and campaigns and elections. Since joining the faculty at Cornell, I have developed several courses. GOVT 4019/6019 is an introductory probability and applied statistics course oriented towards social scientists either completing their undergraduate studies or beginning their graduate studies. GOVT 3041, "Win, Lose or Cheat, examines the interplay between mass preferences and electoral institutions, the normative standards for judging elections, and the statistical detection of fraud. I also teach a year-long sequence of advanced social statistics courses, GOVT 6049-6079, consisting of four 7 week modules in which we learn how to analyze categorical & panel/multilevel data, and study causal estimation and Bayesian computation.
