María del Pilar López-Uribe
Maria received her PhD from the London School of Economics in 2018. She studied economics and history at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. Maria’s research interests are at the intersection of Development Economics, Economic history and Political Economy in Latin America. She is particularly interested in the relationship between different collective action (social movements, producer organizations, local rural associations) and redistributive policies, as well as on their repertoires of contentions (riots, protests, local political parties) and their links to violence and conflict. To develop her projects, Maria has undertaken intense archival data to compile historical statistical information and build original historical municipal-level datasets that allow her to use quantitative methods and econometric techniques. She also has some projects on gender inequality in the long run and online drugs market.
