Tyler Steelman


My name is Tyler Steelman and I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill specializing in American politics and political psychology. For more information on my research, teaching, or to contact me, use the links above!

I am currently serving as an American Political Science Association Public Scholarship Fellow. You can find my summaries of recent APSR journal articles on politicalsciencenow.com.

My dissertation focuses on non-territorial forms of representation in the United States—namely, surrogate representation. I am also currently involved in an ongoing project developing a method for redistricting using ZIP codes as the building blocks for districts. This project was recently published in the Election Law Journal. My other work can be found in Interest Groups and Advocacy and The Monkey Cage.
