Florian Hollenbach received his PhD in political science from Duke University. Before joining the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M in the fall of 2015, he was a fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University.
His research focuses on the political economy of taxation and redistribution, specifically the development of fiscal capacity in authoritarian regimes. In addition, he is interested in the political geography of conflict and political methodology, specifically Bayesian statistics.
