Alexander Bor


I am a Post Doc at the Department of Political Science, Aarhus University, Denmark. Broadly, my work focuses on how the evolved human mind navigates the political and social world. My PhD dissertation investigated the role of intentions and competence in political leader evaluations, relying on quantitative and experimental methods. Currently, I am working on the two large projects supported by the Carlsberg Foundation: In the ROPH (Research on Online Political Hostility) project, we investigate the causes and consequences of hostility and fake news sharing in online political discussions. In the HOPE (How Democracies Cope with Covid19?) project, we monitor how societies respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

My research has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, American Political Science Review, and Psychological Science among other places.

I am also interested in facial appearance, morality and economic voting. I am an R enthusiast fascinated with data vizualization. I do my best to promote and live up to the standards of open science.

You can find me on Twitter, on Google Scholar, on OSF, in AU’s PURE database, or in my office (Bartholins Allé 7, 1341-124, Aarhus C, DK-8000). Feel free to drop me an e-mail!
