Comparative Politics, Political Economy, Latin American Politics and Quantitative Methods.



I’m Héctor Bahamonde, a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science in Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ). 

My interest focuses on comparative political economy, Latin America, quantitative methods and causal inference.

Currently, I am working on several papers related to vote-selling/buying using both observational and experimental data. 

My thesis focuses on state building for the Latin American states. Particularly, it builds on theories proposed by some political economists, development economists and economic historians.
