Dustin Tingley is Professor of Government in the Government Department at Harvard University. He is Deputy Vice Provost for Advances in Learning. His research has spanned international relations, international political economy, climate change, causal inference, data science/machine learning, and digital education, with most focus now on the politics of climate change and energy transitions.
His new book with Alex Gazmararian, Uncertain Futures: How to Unlock the Climate Impasse, was published with Cambridge University Press. The book features the voices of those on the front lines of the energy transition – a commissioner in Carbon County deciding whether to welcome wind, executives at energy companies searching for solutions, mayors and unions in Minnesota battling for local jobs, and fairgoers in coal country navigating their community’s uncertain future.
He teaches courses on the politics of climate change and the environment, data science, and international relations, and chairs Harvard’s Standing Committee on Climate Education and co-chairs the Harvard Standing Committee on Public Service and Engaged Scholarship.
