Natán Skigin is a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame and a Kellogg Institute for International Studies PhD Fellow. His research lies at the intersection between comparative politics and political economy. His substantive interests include political regimes and redistribution in developing countries, the politics of dictatorships, regime transitions, and civil conflict. His methodological interests center on causal inference, experimental designs, quantitative methods, and social network analysis.
In previous works, he conducted research on the conditions under which political parties and electoral coalitions hold primaries, focusing on the Argentine case. He also analyzed how legislative networks increase legislators’ success in Latin American multiparty congresses. Prior to Notre Dame, Natán received an M.A. in Political Science from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and a B.A. in Political Science from Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). His research has been supported by UBA and the Argentina’s national science foundation (CONICET).
