Karl Kahn

DPhil in Politics

I am a final year doctoral student in Politics, supervised by David Rueda. My research interests focus on the politics of inequality and redistribution in advanced industrial democracies, but also include comparative political economy more broadly. In my doctoral dissertation, I examine influence of crime on redistribution preferences and punitive attitudes, using a combination of quantitative and experimental methods. At Oxford, I have taught several undergraduate papers in introductory and advanced comparative politics. I hold a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and an MSc in Politics Research, both from the University of Oxford and Merton College.
