Cesar Vargas Nunez is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science. His dissertation focuses on the political determinants of immigrant's access to healthcare. In particular, he hopes to investigate citizen attitudes to immigrant's access to government healthcare programs - especially during the ongoing COVID19 pandemic - and the conditions under which politicians are likely to act and push for expansionary healthcare policies. His work through the Center for American democrat at IRiSS will explore perceptions of immigrant's deservingness of healthcare and to what extent these attitudes can be altered.
