About Me

My name is Masoud Movahed and I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. I completed my doctorate in Sociology (with a minor in Economics) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. While at UW-Madison’s Sociology Department, I was affiliated with the Institute for Research on Poverty and Center for Demography & Ecology. Broadly, my interests lie at the nexus of economic sociology and social stratification. Most of my research uses computational and quantitative methods, but I retain a keen interest for comparative historical methods.

My works have been published in The Journal of International Development, The Sociological Quarterly, Interface: A Journal for and About Social MovementsHarvard Economics ReviewHarvard International Review, Foreign Affairs, Boston Review, and Yale Journal of International AffairsI have also written a few articles for Aljazeera English andWorld Economic Forum
