Victor A. Hernandez-HuertaVictor A. Hernandez-Huerta

PhD Fellow

I am a PhD student in political science. My first field is comparative politics. I received my BA in political science from the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics (CIDE) in Mexico City in 2006.

After graduating from college, I worked as an advisor to the Federal Electoral Institute’s president and then as an advisor to Mexico’s chief justice, providing support on issues concerning public opinion, transparency, and statistical analysis. I am interested in political parties, judicial politics and political economy in Latin America.

I love traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
