Curriculum Vitae

Victor Araújo is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Political Science at the University of Zurich (UZH), where he works with Prof. Katherina Michaelowa in the research group for political economy and development. His research lies at the intersection between political economy and public policy using experiments and quasi-experimental designs to causally identify voters’ responses to pro-poor policies (e.g., large-scale infrastructure projects and (un) conditional cash transfers) and investigate factors underpinning voter behaviour in low and middle-income countries. His research has been published or is forthcoming at Comparative Political Studies, British Journal of Political Science, Research & Politics, Latin American Research Review, and Brazilian Political Science Review, among others.
