Joan Ricart-Huguet

Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at the Program on Ethics, Politics, & Economics at Yale University. Beginning in the fall of 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Loyola University Maryland. I received my PhD in Politics from Princeton and an MA in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences from Columbia as a recipient of la Caixa Graduate Fellowship.

I study comparative politics and historical political economy. My interests include political elite formation, education, colonial legacies, and culture, with a focus on Africa. My work has appeared in Studies in Comparative International Development and Public Choice.

In recent years, I have consulted for Princeton's Innovations for Successful Societies in Mexico. I also worked as a co-principal investigator with Innovations for Poverty Action in Uganda and at the World Bank in Poverty Reduction and Economic Management.
