Nelson A. Ruiz

Non-Stipendiary Research Fellow
Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, DPIR

I am a political scientist at the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR) at the University of Oxford and Nuffield College (Non-Stipendiary Research Fellow). Recently I was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship with DPIR and Nuffield College. I currently have a reduced teaching load from 2021 to 2024. My research interests are in the political economy of development. Within this field, the main topic I am interested in is the role of money in politics.
