I am an assistant professor at the Center for International Studies at El Colegio de México (Colmex) in Mexico City. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Duke University.

I specialize in comparative political behavior and political economy, with a focus on Latin American countries. My current research explores the political implications of economic vulnerability and overlapping social inequalities, the political economy of social protection, and the sources of public support for social policy in Latin America.
