In his research, Luis uses tools of causal inference to examine how citizens engage democracy in the developing world, with a focus on Latin America. His research has been published or is forthcoming at The Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Perspectives on Politics, and at University of Michigan Press. Luis' book project, Incumbency Bias, proposes a novel behavioral theory to account for incumbency advantage and disadvantage in developing democracies, and takes advantage of causal evidence from Latin America.
