Alejandro López Peceño

Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics at New York University.  My research lies in the intersection of comparative politics and historical political economy. In particular, my dissertation examines the causes and consequences of state responses to the challenges posed by the rise of mass politics, looking at education and suffrage expansions in 19th century France. Prior to NYU, I obtained a MA in Quantitative Social Sciences at the Carlos III-Juan March Institute (IC3JM) and a BA in Economics at Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M).
