Daniel W. Gingerich is Assistant Professor of Politics specializing in comparative politics. His research focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of corruption and clientelism in Latin America as well as developing new methodologies to study these phenomena. Gingerich has published articles in journals such as Political Analysis, the Quarterly Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, Economics and Politics, and the Journal of Theoretical Politics. He is the author of Political Institutions and Party-Directed Corruption in South America: Stealing for the Team, published by Cambridge University Press as a title in the Political Economy of Institutions and Decisions series. In dissertation form, this work was given the 2007 Leonard D. White Award by the American Political Science Association for the best dissertation in the field of public administration. Gingerich is also the sole principal investigator on a large scale, NSF funded project entitled “Can Institutions Cure Clientelism? Assessing the Impact of the Australian Ballot in Brazil.” (SES-1119908). This project provides a rigorous examination of how the transition from the nominal to effective secret vote shapes the nature of political representation by focusing on the historical experience of Brazil before and after the Australian Ballot (AB) was introduced in this county. Prior to coming to Virginia, Gingerich held a fellowship at Princeton's Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. During the 2012-2013 academic year, he was a Visiting Scholar in the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, DC.
