About Me

My name is Joshua Boston, and I am an assistant professor in the Bowling Green State University political science department. My research focuses on American politics, focusing on the behavioral implications of political institutions. My research and teaching center on judicial politics — examining questions of elite decisionmaking, separation of powers, and public support for courts. I have additional interests in questions that study separation of powers, the American presidency, and comparative courts. I earned my Ph.D. in political science at Washington University in St. Louis. Previously, I attended the University at Buffalo (SUNY) where I earned an M.A. in political science and B.A. in legal studies (summa cum laude, ΦΒΚ).
