Andrea Jones-Rooy

AJR-headshot (1).jpg

Andrea Jones-Rooy holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Michigan, a bunch of low self-esteem from years of doing standup comedy, and a series of physical injuries from decades of being a dancer and circus performer. She wields all these confusingly unrelated things at once in her monthly show at Caveat: Political Circus. When she's not doing that, she's the Director of Undergraduate Studies at NYU and the professor of their flagship course, Data Science for Everyone. She also consults and speaks with organizations about social & data science and previously contributed to FiveThirtyEight as a quantitative researcher. This video sums the whole thing up pretty well.

Recently, Andrea started a weekly live show about research to help us understand the political side of the COVID-19 pandemic, called Ask A Political Scientist.

In this online show, Andrea will be joined each week by a political science guest, to help break down the political side of this pandemic. Andrea and her guests will help us understand political science research and how it connects to our current situation, addressing the primaries, COVID-19, and the effects of the pandemic. The show will be followed by 30-minutes of Q&A from the audience.

The show is live-streamed on Caveat's Youtube channel. It can be found here:
