Iain Osgood is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan. His research examines the role of special interests in the politics of trade, foreign investment, and climate change.

Iain is currently working on projects examining progressive opponents of trade in the United States; the strategic interaction of multinational firms and terror groups; and identifying clusters of development strategies among countries engaging with global markets. His recent work appears in American Journal of Political Science, Review of International Organizations, Economics & Politics and Business & Politics.
