Carissa L. Tudor
Ph.D. Candidate, Princeton University
I am a Ph.D. candidate in comparative politics at Princeton University. My research interests span historical and comparative political economy and gender and political development with a regional focus in Europe. In my work I study how long-term institutional and economic changes shape and are shaped by gender relations, family structures, and women’s ability to engage in public life. My dissertation and related research explores how women's political and property rights have interacted and changed overtime. During the 2018-2019 academic year, I conducted archival research in Paris, France and was a visiting Ph.D. student researcher at the Centre d'histoire économie et sociale François Simiand at the Paris School of Economics. My dissertation research has been possible thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation, Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust, as well as several research institutes at Princeton University: Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, Center for the Study of Democratic Politics, and Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
I have an M.S. in Applied Math and Statistics from Georgetown University and a B.A. in Government from Claremont McKenna College. Before coming to Princeton, I worked at the International Monetary Fund and Federal Reserve Board of Governors.
