I am an Assistant Professor at Universidad de O'Higgins in Chile.

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 Acta Politica, Journal of Politics in Latin America, Regional Science, Policy and Practice and Revista de Ciencia Politica. I am also an Associate Editor of Social Science (Springer).

My primary subfield is the political economy of development of Latin America. My research extends across several substantive areas, including state capacity, clientelism and political development. As an applied methodologist I also have a strong interest in statistical and experimental methods.
