About Miguel Centellas

My research is in comparative politics, with a focus on democratic institutions in Bolivia. I earned my Ph.D. from Western Michigan University (2007) and have previously taught at Dickinson College (2006-2008), Mount St. Mary’s University (2008-2009), and Jackson State University (2013-2015). I was awarded a Fulbright graduate fellowship for fieldwork in Bolivia (2003-2004) and was named a graduate fellow by the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences (2006).
I authored the 2011 country report on Bolivia for Freedom House and am often invited to comment on Bolivian politics on national and international media. Most recently, I was invited by the Library of Congress to become a contributing editor and author the Bolivian politics section of the Handbook of Latin American Studies. I recently completed a four-year project supported by the National Science Foundation collecting biographical data on legislative candidates in Bolivia and am working on a series of working papers based on that dataset.
