Andrew Drummond joined the department in 2006 after completing his doctorate in Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, where he was a graduate training fellow in the Center for the Study of Democracy. A comparativist who focuses on elections and party systems in advanced and emerging democracies, Drummond teaches a variety of courses in the department, including European Union, Citizen Politics, Comparative Government: Western, Introduction to Political Science, and Democracies.

Drummond’s research interests focus on how electoral institutions shape party competition, and how this complex influences cognition and behavior. His most recent research examines the institutional determinants of ideological bias in old and new democracies.
