About me

Miguel Pereira is an Assistant Professor in European Politics. His research focuses on inequalities in political representation and the behavior of political elites in established democracies with a focus on causal inference. I am also interested in questions on women and politics, corruption, policy diffusion, and attitude formation. Miguel is a founder and co-director of the Local Governance Observatory, an organization that collaborates with public officials across Europe to solve local governance challenges and bolster the link between voters and their representatives. 

Prior work has been published in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, or Comparative Political Studies, among others. 

Before working at the LSE, he was an assistant professor at the University of Southern California. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Washington University in St. Louis. More details on his research and publications can be found on his personal website
