Welcome! I am currently a PhD candidate in Duke University’s department of Political Science. Starting in August, I will be an Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Sciences at Universidad Católica de Uruguay. Previously, I completed a master’s in International Affairs (UC- San Diego) and another in Political Science (Universidad de los Andes). My research explores the relationship between migration, inequality, and political participation in Latin America. In exploring these themes, I employ various methods to gather and analyze data. Methodologically, I employ advanced regression techniques as well as experimental and quasi-experimental methods. I have also collected a diverse range of original data, including originally digitized archives, fieldwork, surveys, and web scrapping.

Currently, I’m a research associate at DevLab@Penn in the Machine Learning for Peace Project and one of the organizers of the Duke/UNC Latin American Working Group. I have published my work in the British Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Ethnic and Health Disparities, and Editorial Uniandes. My research has been funded by Innovations for Poverty Action, USAID, the World Bank, the Social Science Research Council, and Duke University.
