Lindsay Hundley is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at Stanford University. Previously, she was a Predoctoral Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard Kennedy School. She is broadly interested in international relations and political methodology
Her book project, Ideology and International Conflict, explores why states with opposing political systems so often find themselves at odds over each other's regimes - even when leaders themselves lack strong normative commitments to promoting their ideology abroad.
In other research, she leverages advances in political methodology to shed new light on enduring questions in international politics, with a particular emphasis on experimental tests of formal models and the use of machine learning techniques to process and analyze political texts. Her work has been published in the Journal of Politics and International Studies Perspectives.
Lindsay received her PhD in Political Science in 2020 from Stanford University, where she was a Gerald J. Lieberman Fellow--one of the University's highest distinctions awarded to doctoral students for outstanding accomplishments in research, teaching, and academic leadership.
