Professor Saavedra Cisneros studies political behavior and psychology with a focus on minorities and Latinos. His approach to teaching and research is that of challenging preconceived notions of how and why people from different backgrounds interact with politics across many contexts.

His teaching and research go hand in hand. He motivates students to embark on research projects and has served as a faculty mentor on projects involving Latino politics, political identities, survey experiments and voting in Colombia.
