Vásquez Cortés, Mateo
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). Much of my work focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of violence in the developing world. I am particularly interested in topics related to both criminal and political violence. My research employs multiple research methods, including formal theory, experimental methods, and archival research. I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from New York University. Previously, I graduated from a BA and a MA in Philosophy from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and a BA in Economics from Universidad Externado de Colombia.
