Biography: 

David Siroky is associate professor of political science in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University, where he is a core faculty member of the Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity and the working group on Nationalist and Ethno-Religious Dynamics, as well as a faculty affiliate of the  Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict, the Center for Jewish Studies, the Melikian Center for Russian, Eurasian and East European Studies, and the Center on the Future of War

He studies conflict, cooperation and collective action in politics and economics. Most of this work has focused on three areas: nationalism, particularly its separatist and irredentist strains; the dynamics of insurgency and counterinsurgency, with special attention to the Balkans and Caucasus; and the politics and economics of international interventions. Finally, he is engaged in research on methodology, mainly machine learning, unobtrusive experiments and ethnography in the social sciences. These efforts appear in more than thirty peer-reviewed articles, printed in some of the leading journals, and in a book (January, 2022) with Cambridge University Press.

He has received grants as PI and co-PI from the U.S. National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of State, and National Council for Eurasian and East European Researchalong with research fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation, Zentrum fuer Interkulturelle Studien in Germany and Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme in France. His work has been recognized with several awards, including most recently the Deil S. Wright Best Paper Award from the American Political Science's section on Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations.

He received his Ph.D. in political science and M.A. in economics from Duke University, along with degrees from the University of Chicago, University College London and Boston University, and was the Henry Hart Rice Postdoctoral Fellow at Yale University.
