Arthur Lupia examines how information and institutions affect policy and politics. He studies how people make decisions when they lack information and has applied these insights to topics such as voting and elections, civic competence, legislative-bureaucratic relations, parliamentary governance, and the role of the media and the internet in politics. He draws from multiple scientific and philosophical disciplines and he integrates many research methods.He is also active in creating new opportunities for social scientists. He co-founded TESS (Time-Shared Experiments for the Social Sciences), served as Principal Investigator for the American National Election Studies, and serves as Principal Investigator of EITM (the Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models summer institutes).
