Aaron Watanabe

PhD Student in Government

My experience with the thesis program started with writing my own as a Gov concentrator years ago. Since then, I have advised two theses, served as a TF in Gov 62, and helped seniors develop their topics as a Gov concentration advisor. I really enjoy thesis advising because it gives me a chance to share what I do as a(n aspiring) professional political scientist with undergraduates. While my own work focuses on populism, political elites and elections in Brazil, Peru, and Italy, I'm excited to advise a wide range of topics in American or Comparative politics–my previous advisees wrote on the impact of neurobiology on voter turnout and school district mergers in the US South. Please email me if you'd like to talk about a potential project!
