Giancarlo Visconti specializes in comparative political behavior, distributive politics, causal inference, and Latin American politics. He specifically focuses on how voters modify their political preferences and electoral choices after negative events such as natural disasters, crime, and economic shocks. His work relies on a variety of methods for drawing causal inferences from experimental and observational data.
