Viviana Baraybar Hidalgo

Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics

I am a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Politics at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. My work centres on individual-level political behaviour and explores the role of intuitive processes in judgement and behaviour. 

My DPhil Thesis proposes an Intuitionist approach to corruption, which accounts for the role of intuitive processes (in particular moral intuitions and moral emotions) in addition to reflective/deliberative ones in judgement and behaviour in relation to corruption.
