Before joining University of Turku, I was an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in Chile. Previously, I served as a post-doctoral fellow at Tulane University (New Orleans, LA, U.S.). I received my PhD in Political Science from Rutgers University (New Brunswick, NJ, U.S.) in the spring of 2017.
My primary subfield is the political economy of inequality, democratic development and clientelism. As an applied methodologist I also have a strong interest in statistical as well as experimental methods (lab and survey-based).
My research is either forthcoming, or has been published in Electoral Studies, Political Psychology, the European Journal of Political Economy, Acta Politica, Journal of Politics in Latin America, among others.
