Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow
(Nuffield College)

Soledad Prillaman is a Prize Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Politics. She received a PhD. in Government from Harvard University in 2017.

Her research interests lie at the intersections of comparative political economy, development, gender, and the politics of the welfare state, with a focus in South Asia. She is motivated by questions such as: What are the political consequences of development and development policies? How are minorities democratically represented and where do inequalities in political engagement persist? How are voter demands, particularly of underrepresented populations, translated into policy and governance? In answering these questions, she utilizes mixed methods, including field experiments, primary surveys, and in-depth qualitative fieldwork.
