About Me

My name is Masoud Movahed and I am a doctoral candidate in Sociology (with minor in Economics) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Most of my works use computational and quantitative methods, but I retain a keen interest in comparative historical methods as well.

My works have been published in Harvard Economics Review, Harvard International Review, Foreign Affairs, Cambridge Journal of Economics, Boston Review, Yale Journal of International Affairs, Journal of Development Matters,  Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and Technology. I have also written a few articles for Aljazeera English and World Economic Forum. 

Prior to Joining University of Wisconsin-Madison as a Ph.D. student, I completed a master’s in Economics and Sociology at New York University, where I also worked as a research associate for two years.
