  • I am a fourth year DPhil in Politics candidate based at Wolfson College. Before the DPhil, I completed a Master in Comparative Government also at Wolfson, and before coming to Oxford, I worked as a Junior Financial Manager at the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología. I earned my BA in Politics and Public Administration from Universidad Iberoamericana and I also earned a Research Methods Diploma from UNAM, both back in Mexico City.

  • I am passionate about regime change, subnational politics, presidentialism, and the dynamics linking socio-economic development and politics. My research aims to increase our understanding of subnational regime variation across Latin America and beyond.

  • Methods wise I’m an advocate for ‘theory-grounded eclecticism’. I strongly believe that quantitative literacy is fundamental and that at the core of every useful model lies robust historical and case-specific knowledge. In learning and teaching CHA and ‘metrics, I encourage a hands-on and problem solving approach.

-At Oxford I work as a statistics GTA and I also teach the Latin American Politics tutorial to undergrads at the university. In the UK I’ve also worked as an Associate Lecturer at Brookes University for a similar course.

  • I have a broad interest for the politics of the ‘developing world’ and a keen interest in Latin America, specifically in Argentinian, Brazilian and Mexican political dynamics.

  • I enjoy working out, swimming and long walks. I’m also a Stacraft 2 fan, and a sci-fi, coffee and cinema aficionado.
