Iza Ding is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh with a courtesy appointment in Public Policy at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. Her research uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to understand two political problems that she believes are becoming more challenging and consequential than ever: environmental politics and policy; and the politics of autocracy and democracy. Dr. Ding received her Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University, and her B.A. from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, earning a dual degree in Political Science and Russian and Eastern European Studies.
