Hanno Hilbig

Position Title
Assistant Professor

Kerr Hall 579

I joined UC Davis in 2023. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University. My research lies at the intersection of Comparative Politics and Political Economy. I explore the political implications of central challenges facing established democracies, such as shifting media landscapes, immigration, inequality, fiscal adversity, and housing. I primarily employ causal inference methods for observational data. My work leverages a range of research designs and data sources, including natural experiments, large-scale surveys and administrative data.
