Dr. Gregory Saxton

Gregory W. Saxton is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Texas Tech University, where he teaches courses on comparative politics, Latin American politics, and political analysis.  Dr. Saxton received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Kentucky in 2019. His research is in the field of comparative politics with an emphasis on Latin America, class and inequality, and comparative political behavior.  His work primarily uses quantitative research approaches to understand how inequality and corruption shape citizens' attitudes about democratic institutions.  Saxton is currently completing a book manuscript that examines how inclusion of the working class in political institutions shapes citizens' evaluations of representation in Latin America. His peer-reviewed work appears in Governance, Journal of Elections, Public Opinion, & Parties, Latin American Politics & Society, Politics, Groups, & Identities, and Political Research Quarterly.  He has also conducted extensive fieldwork in Argentina.
