Maria Angélica Bautista is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy. Her research focuses on the political, economic, and social consequences of state-led repression. Her PhD dissertation studied the case of military dictatorship in Chile based on a unique dataset she collected and explores the extent to which repression affected individual political preferences, behavior, and economic outcomes by comparing subjects who were victims of political torture or imprisonment by the state to subjects who did not. She also studies the heterogeneous effects and the intergenerational consequences of repression.
