ULRICHI’m a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. I research and write about social issues and just finished a book about social trust called The Leap: The Science of Trust and Why it Matters. I’m currently working on a book on learning.

Before the Center, I was a contributing editor for U.S. News & World Report. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. In February 2009, HarperCollins published my book The Gardner Heist, which examines the 1990 theft of a dozen masterpieces from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

I’ve served as a commentator for various news outlets, including CNN, National Public Radio, and The New York Times. I graduated from Dartmouth College and live in Washington, D.C. with my wife and two daughters.

Note that I give speeches and serve as a consultant for a variety of organizations. My disclosure statement is here. You can email me at ulrich @ ulrichboser.com or follow me on Twitter at @ulrichboser
