Joan Ricart-Huguet (/ʒuˈan riˈkart uˈɣɛt/)
Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at Loyola University Maryland. I was a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at the Program on Ethics, Politics, & Economics at Yale University. I received my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and an M.A. in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences from Columbia University as a la Caixa Graduate Fellow.
I study comparative politics and historical political economy. My interests are wide-ranging and include political elites, colonial investments and legacies, education, and culture, with a focus on developing countries. My work has been published or is forthcoming at the British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Historical Political Economy, the Journal of Modern African Studies, the Journal of Politics, Public Choice, the Quarterly Journal of Political Science, Studies in Comparative International Development, and World Politics.
Prior to receiving my PhD, I worked as a consultant for Princeton's Innovations for Successful Societies in Mexico and as a consultant in Poverty Reduction and Economic Management at the World Bank.
