|Matthew R. Miles|
I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University, Idaho. I am passionate about teaching, research, and mentoring the most talented undergraduates in the world. My primary research agenda explores the interaction between individual traits and institutional arrangements. I want to know how institutions shape individual attitudes and how our genetic makeup influences our core set of political beliefs. My research has been published in Politics and Religion, Policy Studies Journal, Political Research Quarterly, The International Journal of Press/Politics, Environmental Politics and Presidential Studies Quarterly.
