Kevin Angell

I am a Ph.D. student in the University of Chicago’s Program in Political Economy. I am affiliated with the Chicago Center on Democracy and the Social Science Division’s First Year Scholars Program. Substantively, my interests are primarily focused around US legislative and executive politics. Methodologically, my research incorporates both quantitative and formal theory methods. I have previously received funding from the Center for Effective Government (Chicago Harris), the Malyi Center for the Study of Institutional and Legal Integrity (Chicago Law), the University of Chicago’s Social Science Division, the American Political Science Association, and the Kellogg Institute (University of Notre Dame). I am particularly passionate about increasing access to political science and the social sciences, and I am working to bring the PS-AMP mentorship program to Chicago.

Prior to coming to the University of Chicago, I worked as a healthcare data scientist.  I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Notre Dame, where I received a B.A. in Political Science and Economics, summa cum laude. At Notre Dame, I studied under Jeff Harden and worked at the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities with William Evans and Ethan Lieber. I also was part of the Kellogg International Scholars Program through which I serve as an alumni contact for undergraduate students.
