Greg Robinson studies political institutions, with a particular focus on the American context. His research in American politics has focused on two areas: partisan theories of congressional organization, and the consequences of political ambition for legislative organization. In addition, his research and teaching in political methodology focuses on the elements of research design, with a particular focus on natural experiments. His work has been published in The Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, and Political Research Quarterly. His non-academic writing has appeared in Roll Call, The Hill, and The Christian Science Monitor.
His ongoing research projects include an evaluation of amendment voting in the U.S. House, an argument for a new perspective on agenda politics in legislatures based on simulated status quos, and a larger project using agent-based modeling to show (1) the effect of assortative mating on the relationship between wealth and health and (2) the effect of long-run public policy choices on assortative mating and the resulting inequalities of wealth and health.
Professor Robinson teaches courses in American politics, including courses in legislative politics and in positive political theory, as well as courses in political methodology. He joined the Binghamton faculty in 2007.
