My dissertation examines 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. You can read more about my ongoing research projects here.

Prior to joining Rice, I worked as a legislative aide in the City of Buenos Aires Legislature. I also spent some time interning 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.
