Vicky Fouka
Assistant Professor, Political Science
Faculty Research Fellow, 2017-18


Vicky Fouka is an assistant professor of Political Science at Stanford University. Her research examines how identity and attitudes are shaped by state policies and history and how they themselves affect economic and political outcomes. She is particularly interested in the dynamics of assimilation, with a focus on immigrant groups’ responses to assimilationist policies and to patterns of native discrimination. Her work examines these issues using economic theory and statistical techniques applied on both modern and historical data. Professor Fouka received her PhD in Economics from Pompeu Fabra University in 2015.
