Tessa Ditonto, PhD

Hello, and thanks for visiting my website! I am an assistant professor in the School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) at Durham University in Durham, UK.

I teach and do research in the areas of gender and politics, political behavior and political psychology, primarily in the American context. I am especially interested in how voters learn and make decisions during political campaigns. Much of my research considers how gender-based stereotypes influence the ways in which voters learn about women who run for office. My work has been featured in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, Public Opinion Quarterly, Political Psychology and Political Behavior, and I have received funding from the National Science Foundation and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation.

I received my PhD in Political Science from Rutgers University in 2013, with concentrations in American Politics,Women in Politics, and Political Methodology.
