"Professor Cheibub (Ph.D., University of Chicago, 1994) joined the department in 2006. His research and teaching interests are in comparative politics, political economy and democratic institutions. Currently he is working on three projects: one that seeks to account for the adoption of mixed democratic constitutions (often referred to as "semipresidential" constitutions), as well as their implications for democratic performance; second, a study of the "electoral connection" in proportional representation systems, focusing initially on Brazil; finally, a project that analyzes the relationship among economic performance, elections and alternation in power in different types of democratic regimes. In addition to the work that has appeared in the form of books, he has published in several edited volumes and in journals such as American Political Science Review, World Politics, British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Politics and Society, Journal of Democracy and Studies in Comparative International Development."
