My name is Santiago Olivella.
I am an assistant professor of Political Science at the University North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
My research focuses on the use of novel computational methods for quantitative political research (particularly models in machine learning), the measurement of latent traits, and the political consequences of electoral and legislative institutions (particularly the geographic dimension of such consequences).
I received my B.A. in Political Science from Universidad de Los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) and went on to receive my Ph.D. (2013) at Washington University in St. Louis (USA).
