Biography  

Dominik Stecula received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of British Columbia. His Ph.D. research examined the changes in the news media environment and its relationship to political polarization in the United States. Dominik studies American and comparative politics, and his work mostly occupies the subfields of political communication and political behaviour. He is particularly interested in examining the nature of the coverage of scientific issues in the news, the dynamics of public opinion polarization of scientific issues like climate change, safety of GMOs, and vaccinations, and the relationship between the two. He is currently a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University and the Martin Fishbein Postdoctoral Fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Dominik is also affiliated with the Cultural Cognition Lab at Yale Law School and the Political News and Opinion Lab at the University of Pennsylvania.
