Carly Potz-Nielsen

Welcome! I am currently a visiting lecturer in research methods at Texas Christian University in the Department of Political Science. I am finishing my dissertation in Political Science this fall at the University of Minnesota. 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.
