I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Political Science at Temuco Catholic University in Chile. I am also an Adjunct Researcher for the Centre for Social Conflict and Cohesion Studies (COES).
I specialize in comparative politics, political behavior and social movements. I am interested in the causes and effects of political participation, and particularly in the relationship between institutional politics and society. In my research, I use both qualitative and quantitative methods.
I am a native of Santiago, Chile, and have studied in the United States and Italy. I have a B.A. in Political Science and in Italian from the University of Notre Dame (2011). I obtained a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin (2017). I have fieldwork experience in the United States, Mexico, Peru, and Chile.
