Carly Potz-Nielsen

Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Minnesota studying international relations and quantitative methods. My substantive interests center in international political economy and my methodological interests revolve around measurement and data production. 

My core motivation is to understand who gets access to capital, and with it, the opportunity to grow and develop, both within a country and around the globe. I am particularly interested in the role that governments play in guiding capital to and from specific investors, industries, or markets.
