Welcome! I am a political scientist and researcher. In June 2019, I joined the trust research team at Airbnb.
I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Rice University in May of 2019. My dissertation examined the importance that parties have for voters in Latin America in three main aspects: as information shortcuts, as a form of social identity, and for keeping governments accountable. To test the main theory put forward by the study, I conducted web surveys with embedded conjoint experiments in Argentina and Mexico.
Prior to both joining Airbnb and starting my Ph.D., I worked as a legislative aide in the City of Buenos Aires Legislature. I also spent some time working at the Inter-American Development Bank’s Central American country department. I have an M.A. in Development Management and Policy from Georgetown University and a B.A. in Political Science from Universidad Torcuato Di Tella. I was awarded a Fulbright doctoral scholarship in 2014.
