Thomas J. Scotto is a Professor of Government and Politics at the University of Strathclyde. His interests lie in the area of public opinion and applied quantitative methods (particularly structural equation and latent variable modelling). His recent ESRC and British academy funded work is in the area of cross-national public opinion on matters of foreign policy. His work on this subject appears in International Studies Quarterly, Political Behaviour, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, and Canadian Foreign Policy. Professor Scotto's earlier work focused on American and Canadian voting behaviour and he co-authored the University of Toronto Press Book Making Political Choices: Canada and the United States. From 2007-2016, he was a member of the Department of Government at the University of Essex where he was the recipient of multiple teaching awards from the Essex Student Union. His consultancies include work on the development of "open government" indicators for the OECD, on "Parliamentary Strengthening" projects in Mozambique, Ukraine, and Georgia, and on survey design work in the United States and United Kingdom.
