Welcome to my web site!
I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Political Economy and Government. My interests lie in the political economy of development and comparative economic development with a particular focus on elite behavior. Specifically, I have worked on the causes and effects of democratic political dynasties, the role of information and electoral brokers in improving political accountability, and the link between crime/violence and democratic representation/public good provision. In my current projects, I use data from Mexico.
At Harvard, I am a Ph.D. Student Affiliate at Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) and the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS).
I was born and raised in Durango, Mexico. Before beginning my doctoral studies, I obtained a double bachelor in Economics and Political Science from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City.
