BIO

Calla Hummel studies why informal workers unionize. More generally, she investigates the conditions under which marginalized people form politically powerful interest groups. She received her PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and will join the University of Miami’s Department of Political Science as an Assistant Professor in August 2017.
Calla uses statistical, ethnographic, survey, machine learning, and formal methods. She conducts research with street vendor unions in La Paz, Bolivia and São Paulo, Brazil. Her research is published in Comparative Political Studies, Umbrales, and Latin American Research Review, and has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Education.
