Rodrigo Castro CornejoRodrigo Castro Cornejo

PhD Fellow, Dissertation Year Fellow 2016

"I am a PhD candidate (Political Science) and a Garza PhD Fellow of the Kellogg Institute. I specialize in comparative political behavior. My research interests include survey research, public opinion and voting behavior. Specifically, I study political campaigns, elections, the development of partisan and ideological attachments, as well as the effect of vote-buying, corruption and clientelism on voting behavior.

My dissertation is motivated by a puzzling fact: political campaigns tend to influence voters in some party systems, but seem to be inconsequential in other party systems. In my dissertation, I seek to answer three interrelated questions: Why do campaigns seem to matter in some contexts but not in others? Why it is fairly easy to predict election outcomes in some party systems but not in others? Which voters can be persuaded by campaign information and why? I use a combination of survey research and cross-national data to answer these questions."
