Youssef Chouhoud

Assistant Professor, Christopher Newport University

I'm a quantitative social scientist specializing in survey analysis and methodology. Broadly speaking, my research examines how race, ethnicity, and religion affects social and political outcomes in the US. I have particular expertise on the American Muslim experience with deep historical, empirical, and personal understanding of this community's ebbs and flows in society. Other substantive interests include studying support for democratic norms, particularly political tolerance, in established and emerging democracies. In addition to my academic appointment at CNU, I am an affiliated scholar with the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding and 2023-24 Public Fellow with the the Public Religion Research Institute.
