New College Political Behavior Lab

The New College of Florida Political Behavior Lab (PBL) is a team of undergraduate students, with and under the direction of Professor Reilly, conducting research on elections, public opinion, and political behavior. We especially work on questions regarding social context and influence in politics, social and political networks, and political geography using statistics and data science techniques. We have a particular interest in Florida politics, and conduct our work in a open, reproducible fashion.

You can find out more about us, who we are, and what we do, at our website: ncfpbl.github.io.

Join Us

Interested in joining the lab? We’d love to have you! If you’d like to join, but aren’t sure what you’d like to do, let Professor Reilly know or talk to a current lab member. There are a number of existing projects you could contribute to, depending on your skill set and interest.

The lab is directed by Prof Reilly, but is a collaborative endeavor between him and the students in the lab. The topics we study and research we conduct are driven by both his interests and the interests of students working in the lab. You can get a good feel for the kinds of things we work on by browsing our website, but there are also a few other things in progress that we haven’t made public yet.
