Cesar Zucco Jr. is a Professor at FGV/EBAPE, a school of business and public administration in Rio de Janeiro. He specializes in Latin American politics, and is currently working on collaborative projects that seek to examine how economic factors beyond the control of Latin American presidents affect their popularity and reelection prospects, identify which features make conditional cash transfers popular among the economically better-off, and map and understand partisanship in Brazil. All of these projects employ a mix of observational and experimental techniques, including both survey- and lab-experiments. He obtained his Ph.D. in Political Science from UCLA, and was previously an Assistant Professor at Rutgers and held visiting appointments at Princeton and Yale. His previous work on several topics on Brazilian and Latin American Politics has appeared in journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, and other comparative politics and area studies venues.
