I am an Assistant Professor at Universidad de O'Higgins's, Instituto de Ciencias Sociales, in Chile, where I also serve as Head of the Public Administration and Political Science program.
Before joining Universidad de O'Higgins, I served one year as a post-doctoral fellow at Tulane University for the 2017-2018 AY. I received my Ph.D in Political Science from Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ) in the spring of 2017.
My research is either forthcoming, or has been published in Journal of Politics in Latin America and Revista de Ciencia Politica.
My primary subfield is the political economy of development of Latin America. My research extends across several substantive areas, including state capacities, vote-buying and political development. I also have a strong interest in political methodology. In my work, I leverage observational, experimental and statistical methods (linear, non-linear, hierarchical, time-series and Bayesian econometrics), but also historical institutionalist approaches. My teaching interests include political economy, Latin American politics, comparative politics, epistemology, and political methodology, all at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
