Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of New Mexico. My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative politics and political economy. More specifically, I use both formal theory and quantitative methods to study political institutions, electoral competition, and party strategy in developing democracies, with a focus on Latin America. My work has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review and Legislative Studies Quarterly.
Before joining UNM, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at New York University Abu Dhabi. I received my PhD in political science from the University of Rochester in 2018. I also hold a BA in political science from the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in my hometown, Mexico City.
