Dissertation Fellow
UC San Diego

Zachary Steinert-Threlkeld is an assistant professor of public policy at the University of California, Los Angeles’ Luskin School of Public Affairs. His research takes advantage of geolocated tweets, simulations, location data, and images to understand individual-level behavior at a daily level; these data can illuminate dynamics of mobilization, elite behavior, and state repression, among others. His dissertation shows that mobilization occurs through coordinating action undertaken by non-influential individuals with data from the Arab Spring.
