Dr. Sagarzazu's current research focuses on understanding what shapes political communications and what are its consequences. In particular, what is the effect that institutions have on the dynamics of issue politics, and how do these dynamics affect individual voters? Other research projects involve developing and using content analysis techniques for understanding different political problems (such as issue attention in political speeches, court decisions, etc) and understanding Venezuelan Politics. Dr. Sagarzazu received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Houston. Before joining TTU he was a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Glasgow in Scotland (UK).
