Enos is an assistant professor of government and a faculty associate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.  He specializes in American politics with an emphasis on the politics of race & identity and voting behavior.  His research focuses on how voting and other political behavior is affected by the context in which a person lives interacting with their identity.  This leads him to an intersection of research in political behavior, political psychology, and geography.

Berkeley and his MA and PhD in political science from UCLA. Before entering academia, he was a teacher at Paul Robeson High School in Chicago, IL.
