Welcome to my website. I hold a PhD in Politics from Princeton University. Most of my academic research lays in the field of historical political economy of development and the interplay between state formation and economic development in the long run. My dissertation, supervised by Deborah Yashar, Guadalupe Tuñón and Carles Boix, studies the conditions under which political regime change can cause state capture and decay. At Princeton, I taught comparative politics, quantitative methods and R programming, which earned me the George A. Kateb teaching award. I also served as student coordinator of the Latin American Politics Workshop and the Comparative Politics Colloquium, as an editorial assistant for World Politics for three years, and as a data analysis consultant at the Stokes Viz Hub.
I have also worked as a consultant at the Inter-American Development Bank and at a number of projects related to facilitating access to data and public statistics in different countries. Among other projects, I have collaborated on a website that allows a friendly access to socio-economic statistics from Argentina, a daily report on covid-19 vaccination rollout in Argentina and an interactive dashboard compiling electoral polls on the 2023 presidential election in Argentina. Those projects have been featured and commented on in numerous media outlets around the world, including The New York Times, Bloomberg, La Nación, Perfil, Infobae and El Economista, among many others.
Before coming to Princeton, I got a BA in Political Science from Universidad de San Andrés, Argentina, and worked in policy analysis in national and subnational government agencies. I also co-authored a general-interest book on political development in Argentina, which was awarded the first prize by the Academia Nacional de Ciencias Morales y Políticas in 2014 and declared of public interest by the Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires in 2016.
