Manuel A. Meléndez-Sánchez



I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science at Harvard University, where I am affiliated with the Department of Government and the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS).

I am interested in comparative politics and the political economy of development, with a substantive focus on political parties, the politics of criminal violence, and how the two interact. My regional focus is on Latin America.

I have an A.B. from Harvard and an M.Sc. from Oxford, where I was a Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholar and a member of St. Antony’s College. I was born and raised in San Salvador, El Salvador.
