Alexandra Guisinger is an Assistant Professor Political Science at Temple University. Prior to starting at Temple, Dr. Guisinger was an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. She received her Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University in 2005.
Dr. Guisinger’s research concerns how states, international markets, and domestic actors communicate with each other. One strand focuses on how governments can most credibly signal intentions to other governments and to markets. A second strand focuses on public opinion toward government policies. Her work utilizes formal and informal models based on assumptions of rational decision making and strategic interactions and covers a diverse set of topics, including conflict escalation, financial crises, exchange rate regimes, trade policy, and capital regulations.
