Marina Nistotskaya

I am a political scientist interested in how political institutions affect human wellbeing. My research focuses on Weberian (meritocratic) public bureaucracy, state capacity, taxation and provision of complex social services. My research mostly utilises statistical methods, but also case study methodology, particularly comparative historical comparison.
