Welcome! I'm Angelo Dagonel, a first-year Government PhD student at Harvard University.

My research interests revolve around institutions and race, specifically immigration policy and redistricting. I love working with data, and many of my projects have relied upon precinct level election returns, turnout behavior from voter files, federal and state level roll calls, and survey responses gauging policy preferences.

Before graduate school, I was a researcher at the Stanford-MIT Healthy Elections Project, a recruitment analyst at the Harvard Digital Lab for the Social Sciences, and a Harvard Research Scholar Initiative pre-doctoral fellow.

I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2018 with a BA in Political Science, after transferring from Pasadena City College in late 2016 with various AA degrees. Outside of academia, I enjoy collecting records, watching movies, and taking photos.
