My name is Marika Csapo and currently I am a teaching fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles, where I also completed my PhD in Political Science (June, 2016) and my M.S. in Statistics (March, 2016). Previously I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Vanderbilt University. My research interests include local Brazilian politics, the politics of development, social policy and public services, health politics, and political methodology.
