Senior Lecturer in Legal Studies at the School of Social Sciences, La Trobe University (Melbourne).
His work focuses on law and politics in comparative perspective, with an emphasis on Latin America. His research interests include judicial politics, law and development and judicial reform, using qualitative and quantitative methods.
His main goal is to contribute to the recent wave of analyses that assess the conditions that explain judicial empowerment, the politicization of courts and sound judicial reform practices across different political contexts. This is directly linked to a broad range of topics in comparative politics and legal studies.
