Noah Buckley is a political scientist studying the politics of authoritarianism in the post-communist world. His research focuses on corruption, political elites, and public opinion in Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union. Ongoing research projects include the study of how political competition can inhibit corruption in authoritarian regimes, social network analysis of elites in Putin's Russia, and how the public judges their leaders or holds them accountable when democratic feedback mechanisms operate poorly.
Noah completed his Ph.D. in political science at Columbia University in 2016. He has been a research fellow at the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia since 2011. His research has been published in Comparative Political Studies, Comparative Politics, Europe-Asia Studies, the Journal of Experimental Political Science, and elsewhere.
