Brief Bio

Brief Bio | Jan Stuckatz

I am an Assistant Professor of Business and Government at Copenhagen Business School’s (CBS) Department of International Economics, Government, and Business. Before joining CBS, I held postdoctoral and visiting positions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Humboldt University Berlin and the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST). I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the Government Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2019.

I study political economy, with a focus on money in politics and corporate political activity. I am especially interested in (1) how corporations strategically combine different non-market strategies to influence politics and (2) the importance of the workplace for employees’ political activities. I specialize in quantitative analyses of big datasets. I use computational social science methods, causal inference for observational and experimental data, and natural language processing tools.

My work on “How the Workplace affects Employee Political Contributions” has been published in the American Political Science Review, and my research on “Political Alignment between Firms and Employees in the United States” in Political Science Research and Methods.

I am looking forward to teaching courses in Political Economy, Money in Politics, Non-Market Strategy, and Quantitative Methods. On this website, you find my research, teaching experience, and curriculum vitae. Feel free to contact me via email.
