Matthew Green (PhD, Yale University, 2004) is a Professor of Politics at The Catholic University of America.  His research interests include congressional politics, U.S. elections, state and local politics, political leadership, and the development of political institutions in the United States.

Green has written a number of books and articles about American politics.  
His most recent book, Living in an Age of Mistrust (coedited with Andrew Yeo), is an interdisciplinary examination of trust that originated from an IPR-sponsored academic conference on the subject.
 "Demonstrating the challenges that declining trust poses locally, nationally, and internationally, Living in an Age of Mistrust merits attention from students, scholars, and anyone interested in nurturing the bonds of trust to address problems of policymaking, community building, and international cooperation."    Douglas Harris, Loyola University Maryland

Professor Green's research has also appeared in several journals, including American Politics Research, Electoral Studies, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Political Science Research and Methods, and Political Research Quarterly.

Professor Green discusses the House Freedom Caucus and other coalitions in the U.S. House of Representatives in this Legistlative Branch Capacity Working Group from February, 2018
