Dylan W. Groves
I am a PhD candidate in Political Science at Columbia University.
I study comparative politics and the political economy of development. An overview of my current research projects is available here.
I specialize in research grounded in field-based data collection and collaboration with local partners. My recent projects include:
A field experiment to understand how local investigative journalists influence government responsiveness in Tanzania
A 5-year mixed-methods study of climate change adaptation and community-based rangeland management in Namibia
A national-scale field experiment to combat public health misinformation and improve government health services through local radio stations in Tanzania.
An ongoing collection of studies to evaluate how mass media messages shape social and political attitudes in Tanzania.
My research has been supported by the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the Social Science Research Council, and has appeared or is forthcoming in the Journal of Politics, Comparative Political Studies, and Nature - Earth & Environment, among other journals.
I like meeting people, so please get in touch. You can reach me at email@example.com
