I am director of the undergraduate program in Public Policy at Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE), Aguascalientes, Mexico. I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Notre Dame.
My research focuses on comparative political institutions, elections and electoral justice, with a regional specialization in Latin America. I have also been a post-doctoral fellow at the University of the Andes in Colombia, a visiting fellow at the University of California San Diego’s Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies, and a Garza Ph.D. Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. Previously, I served as an advisor of Mexico’s Chief Justice and as an advisor to the President of Mexico’s National Electoral Institute.
I was the 2015 International IDEA/Electoral Integrity Project essay competition winner. My work has been published or is forthcoming at the Journal of Politics, Election Law Journal and Colombia Internacional.
