Theo Serlin

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Stanford University. My research is in international and comparative political economy. I am especially interested in how spatial processes like migration and agglomeration influence people's preferences over policies and their reactions to economic change.

I graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College in 2018 with an A.B. in History. I received an M.A. in Economics from Stanford in 2022.
