The King Center on Global Development welcomes two new postdoctoral fellows for 2019 - 2020. Brandon de la Cuesta and Sara Lowes were selected out of an impressive pool of over 200 candidates.

De la Cuesta studies clientelism and electoral accountability in weak states using a mixed-methods approach that combines observational data with lab-in-the-field, survey and conjoint experiments.

Lowes' research is at the intersection of development economics, political economy, and economic history. Many of her on-going projects are in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following this year's postdoctoral position, Lowes will join the University of California, San Diego, as an assistant professor of economics.
