Miguel R. Rueda


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Emory University. My research interests include electoral manipulation, civil conflict, electoral systems, and political methodology. My work on electoral manipulation focuses on the mechanics of clientelism and patronage, exploring how direct informal exchanges between politicians and voters take place.


Prior to joining the Emory faculty, I was a visiting research scholar at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics of Princeton University (2013-2014). I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Rochester in 2014. I also hold an M.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from La Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.
