Beramendi2015I am a Professor of Political Science at Duke University. I am a political economist with a focus on the causes and consequences of economic inequality, comparative political institutions and the connection between economic and political inequality as a key driver of democratic performance. More specifically, my  work revolves around three main areas: economic geography and the politics of redistribution, the comparative study of fiscal capacity and progressivity, and the political economy of participation and representation.

In this website you will find more detailed information about these lines of research as well as about my teaching and other professional activities.
