I am an Assistant Professor at Universidad de O'Higgins's, Instituto de Ciencias Sociales, 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 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.
