About Me

Hi! My name is Danilo Freire. I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London with a thesis on organised crime in Latin America. My thesis supervisor is Professor David Skarbek.

My main topics of interest are prison gangs, civil wars, organised crime and Brazilian politics. I'm also interested in research methods, mainly in causal inference designs, meta-analysis, Bayesian data analysis and survey experiments. You can read my published articles and working papers in the research section of this website.

Here are my CV, my GitHub account, my Google Scholar profile, and my Lattes Curriculum.
