About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I hold an M.A in Sociology from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and an M.A in Political Science from UNC-Chapel Hill.

My research focuses on political psychology, public opinion, and political parties from a comparative perspective. I study how institutional and political contexts shape the way individuals define and perceive themselves politically. My research has been published in Party Politics, the European Journal of Political Research, the Journal of Politics in Latin America, and the Latin American Research Review.

I also coordinate (with Jonathan Hartlyn and Cecilia Martínez-Gallardo) the Chapel Hill Expert Survey - Latin America (CHES-LA). The first wave, conducted in 2020, asked 160 experts to place 112 political parties and 13 presidents on an extensive set of issue and dimensions. The data can be accessed here.
