I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science (Profesor Asociado de Ciencia Política) at ITAM in México City and Level I researcher at Mexico’s Sistema Nacional de Investigadores (SNI). My main areas of research include elections in authoritarian regimes, electoral systems, and political careers. My work has been published or is forthcoming at the Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Political Science Research and Methods, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Comparative Political Studies, Electoral Studies and Journal of Politics in Latin America. I am enthusiastic about the use of quantitative methods to answer substantive political questions, and I hope to transmit this interest to my students.
I received my PhD. in Political Science from Washington University in St. Louis in 2016.
