Joan Ricart-Huguet

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

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.

While in graduate school, I consulted for Princeton's Innovations for Successful Societies in Mexico. I was also a co-principal investigator with Innovations for Poverty Action in Uganda and worked at the World Bank in Poverty Reduction and Economic Management.
