I received my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in June and I am currently a lecturer at UCLA's Center for American Politics and Public Policy in Washington, DC.
My research explores the impact of domestic politics on international cooperation, particularly in Latin America. My dissertation and book project explores how the distributive and moral conflicts that human rights treaties activate within civil society hinder the incorporation of international treaty provisions into domestic law. (Read more about my research here.)
Before attending UCLA, I completed my graduate and undergraduate training at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and Universidad de San Andrés in Argentina.
