Gregory Saxton

I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Kentucky in May 2019.  Currently, I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department at Texas Tech University. 

My research and teaching interests are in the field of comparative politics with a focus on Latin America, political behavior, economic inequality, and the politics of developing countries.  My dissertation research was supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant, as well as a College of Arts & Sciences Dean's Competitive Fellowship, and I have conducted extensive fieldwork in Argentina.  My current research agenda focuses on three interrelated topics: economic inequality, the representation of traditionally underrepresented groups, and perceptions of corruption.

My peer-reviewed research has been published in Governance, Politics Groups and Identities, and Political Research Quarterly.
