The topic of Dan’s dissertation is hyperpresidentialism, where he seeks to determine the structural conditions that allow a president to usurp power
from congress and the judiciary. In Argentina and Chile, Dan seeks to determine why Argentine presidents have been able to concentrate power to such a great degree whereas Chilean presidents have been significantly more constrained by institutions of horizontal accountability.
