My name is Mariana Giusti-Rodríguez and I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in the Government Department at Cornell University and a Pre-doctoral Fellow in the Political Science Department at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research interests include ethnic politics, voter behavior, political representation, social movements and networks, political accountability, inequality, and immigration, particularly in Latin America. My current book project examines the relationship between ethnic cleavages, social network structures, and party system reconstruction processes in the Andes.  I have been awarded a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, a Ford Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship, and an Excellence Through Diversity Pre-doctoral Fellowship from the University of Pennsylvania in support of this research.
