I am a teaching associate at the College of Business and Social Sciences at Aston University. My main areas of research and teaching are international human rights norms and domestic compliance, transitional justice and transnational advocacy networks, with a particular focus in Latin America.
I have a PhD in International Relations (Summa Cum Laude) from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, an MA in International Relations from the University of Essex, UK and a BA in Journalism and Social Communication from Universidad Diego Portales, in Chile. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
My PhD thesis focused on the impact of the Pinochet arrest in London on torture victims in Chile.
I have worked as a researcher for the UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, in Nicosia, Cyprus and as a journalist in two Chilean daily newspapers: Las Ultimas Noticias (El Mercurio S.A) and La Tercera (COPESA).
