About

Hi. I’m Matt Glassman. I’m a researcher and writer in Washington, DC.

My current areas of research include: congressional operations, separation of powers,  institutional design and change, and 19th century American political development. See my full CV here.

I also occasionally write about poker strategy and am still working on a novel that occasionally shows signs of progress.


Biography

Matt, Sarah, Anna, and Abby

I was born  in Albany, New York  in 1978.  I graduated from Shaker High School in 1996, and magna cum laude from Hamilton College in 2000. After college, I moved to New Haven, Connecticut to work on a Ph.D. in political science at Yale, which I completed in 2007.

I live in Vienna, VA with my wife, Sarah and daughters Anna (3) and Abigail (1). When I’m not busy with the family or thinking about politics, I like to listen to 70s glam rock and watch a whole lot of English rugby on TV. I can make a damn tasty Old Fashioned, but my first love will always be cheap Canadian beer, no glass thanks.
