My name is Marika Csapo and currently I am a postdoctoral fellow at the
Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Vanderbilt
University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science
and my M.S. in Statistics (March, 2016) at the University of
California, Los Angeles. My research interests include local
Brazilian politics, the politics of development, social policy and
public services, health politics, and political methodology.
