Bruno Castanho Silva

I have just earned my PhD in Comparative Politics at the Central European University in Budapest. From September I'll join the Cologne Center for Comparative Politics, at the University of Cologne, as a post-doctoral researcher. My research interests are on quantitative methods, more specifically causal inference, machine learning, and structural equation modeling, and I've also got a paper or two (or ten...) on populism. Non-research interests include football (the one you play using your foot and a ball) and movies.
