Collingwood's research and teaching focuses specifically on campaigns and elections, political behavior, race and ethnicity, and quantitative methodology. His dissertation, "The Pursuit of Victory and Incorporation: Elite Strategy, Group Pressure, and Cross Racial Mobilization," focuses on when and how candidates mobilize members of different races. In addition, Collingwood is working on several projects around issues of Latino representation, race of interviewer effects in telephone surveys, and automated text classification using supervised learning methods.
