Bryant J. Moy, CDS Faculty Fellow

Meet CDS Faculty Fellow Bryant J. Moy, who will be joining us this July. Moy will also be taking on a position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Politics at NYU and will join the Department of Politics in 2024 as Assistant Professor. Moy graduated in 2022 with a PhD in Political Science from Washington University in St. Louis. He previously attended Arkansas State University where he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science.

Moy is an accomplished American politics scholar with a committed interest in local politics, race, and data science. His research centers on how cities in the United States function as “small-scale multi-racial democracies.” Currently, he is investigating how American citizens structure policy in local democracy. Moy has methodological interests in causal inference, experimental design, and computational methods. At CDS this fall, Moy will be teaching a course in causal inference.

“I am excited to join NYU CDS and work at the intersection of data science and political science,” said Moy. “I look forward to developing unique modeling strategies to advance the fields of local politics and the study of race in the United States.”

His writing and research have appeared in the Oxford Bibliographies in Political Science, Political Behavior, and the Journal of Experimental Political Science. In 2021, a section of his dissertation work was awarded Best Graduate Student Poster Award (Applications) from the Society of Political Methodology Summer Conference.
