Arthur Lupia is an American political scientist. He is the Hal R. Varian Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan and Chair of the Social, Economic, and Political Sciences Section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
He examines how information and institutions affect policy and politics. Much of his work focuses on how people make decisions when they lack information. His work is inter-disciplinary. It provides insights on voting, civic competence, political persuasion, legislative-bureaucratic relations, parliamentary governance, and political communication, and the public value of the social sciences.,
He has received several awards including the 2007 Innovators Award from the American Association for Public Opinion Research  and 1998 NAS Award for Initiatives in Research from the National Academy of Sciences. He has received a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and a year at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
He has held many scientific leadership positions. As a founder of TESS (Time-shared Experiments for the Social Sciences), he helped hundreds of researchers run innovative experiments using nationally-distributed subject pools. As a contributor and then as Principal Investigator to the National Science Foundation's EITM (Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models) program, he helped to develop curricula that show young scholars how to better integrate advanced empirical and theoretical methods into effective research agendas. As a Principal Investigator of the ANES (American National Election Studies), he introduced many procedural, methodological, and content innovations to one of the world's best-known scientific studies of elections. He has also introduced multiple innovations to the field of science communication and serves on communication-related advisory boards for the National Academy of Sciences and other organizations.
