I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Social Sciences of Carlos III University. Previously, I obtained a DPhil in Politics from the University of Oxford, the MA in Social Sciences from the Carlos III-Juan March Institute, and a B.A. in Law from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I am a fellow of the Carlos III-Juan March Institute, of the Civil War Paths Project hosted at the University of Sheffield, and of the Future Policy Lab.
I am broadly interested in areas such as comparative politics, political philosophy and political economy. More concretely, my research is particularly focused on the understanding of the dynamics of political violence, the politics of state capacity, as well as the causes and consequences of economic inequality and meritocratic values. I rely on the use of a mixed-methods approach, combining the use of quantitative methods and causal inference techniques with qualitative analysis.
My work has been published at Latin American Politics and Society and Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, among others. I have also collaborated in national outlets such as eldiario.es.
