Anna Callis is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Tulane University’s Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR). She holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley. Her research focuses on the politics of democratization and the stability of new democracies. Her work employs a multi-method approach that draws on natural experiments, archival research, as well as both qualitative and quantitative data. In her dissertation, she examines the counter-intuitive role of economic elites in supporting democratic transitions and the ways in which these elites shape the prospects for economic redistribution post-democratization. She explores these dynamics in Latin America, with a particular focus on Argentina.
