Biography: 

Daniel Stegmueller is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Duke University. He's also an associate member of Nuffield College, University of Oxford, and of CAGE, University of Warwick. 

His research lies at the intersection of political economy and political behavior. He studies political preferences and choices in advanced industrialized societies, specifically individuals' preferences for redistribution and redistributive voting. He's interested in how these are shaped by social structure and institutions, but also by basic individual characteristics, such as cognitive and non-cognitive skills.

Methodologically, he's interested in applied Bayesian modeling, Bayesian Nonparametrics, hierarchical/multilevel models, measurement and discrete choice models. He's particularly interested in applying these models to problems of comparative/cross-cultural research and to panel data.
