Meet our Research Affiliates: Fred Gui and Arjun Vishwanath
The Center for Effective Lawmaking is happy to introduce Fred Gui and Arjun Vishwanath as two of our newest postdoctoral research affiliates.
Fred Gui is a postdoctoral research associate at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia. His research interests include American political institutions, interest groups, state and local politics, and racial and ethnic politics. His most recent project examines the impact of having racial diverse staffers on the corresponding legislators’ choices to sponsor and cosponsor civil rights and immigration bills. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Rochester, and an M.A. in International Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
Arjun Vishwanath is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. He studies representation in American politics, and his research addresses ways to broaden our conceptions of representation as well as the effects of electoral institutions on representation. His work has appeared in the American Journal of Political Science and Studies in American Political Development. He received his Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University and a B.A. in Political Science and Mathematics from Swarthmore College.
The Center is excited to have these two scholars on the team and look forward to engaging with their research.
