Gabriel Lenz
Associate Professor, UC Berkeley

Gabriel Lenz's research focuses on voters’ ability to control their elected officials. His aim is to further our understanding of when voters succeed in holding politicians accountable, when they fail, and how to help them avoid failures. Drawing on insights from social psychology and economics, his research and teaching interests are in the areas of elections, public opinion, political psychology, and political economy. Although specializing in American democracy, Lenz also conducts research on Canada, the U.K., Mexico, Netherlands, and Brazil. He has ongoing projects about improving voters' assessments of the performance of politicians, reducing the role of candidate appearance in elections, and measuring political corruption.
