Maria Carreri

Assistant Professor

Maria Carreri’s research is in the fields of political economy and local politics. She studies local politicians and the local institutions that constrain their actions, and seeks to answer two sets of questions: i) What is the impact of local elected officials for service delivery, local public finance, and the distribution of resources within communities? ii) How do local institutions impact the way in which elected officials affect these outcomes? She tackles these questions using causal inference methods in quasi-experimental settings, leveraging a combination of original surveys, newly digitized historical data and administrative data, across Italy, Colombia and the U.S.

Carreri is an assistant professor at the School of Global Policy and Strategy and teaches courses including Quantitative Analysis of Public Policy and Urban Politics.
