Maximiliano Sosa Andrés

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Economics at Uppsala University. My primary research interests are political and institutional economics, and applied microeconomics. In particular, in my thesis I use Natural Language Processing on laws to calculate variation in legal wording and construct a Legal Uncertainty Index for a variety countries. I am also interested in the role of political ideology on institutional outcomes, including polarization and international relations and human rights.

I also work on topics regarding economic uncertainty and risk aversion, using machine learning techniques and occasionally experimental economics

I hold a MSc. in Economics from the University of Montevideo in Uruguay and a MSc. (equivalent) in International Economics from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy in Germany

I am on the 2022-23 economics job market and will be available for interviews at 2022 EJME
