Comentario

En los últimos 15 años he vivido en Estados Unidos y México. Ahí emprendí una investigación que contempló diversos aspectos como la democratización, el desarrollo social, los movimientos sociales y el trabajo social. Igualmente, profundicé mis conocimientos sobre la teoría social.
Mi actual tema de investigación es el estudio del activismo político y para analizarlo, concentro mi pesquisa en el análisis de los artículos periodísticos. Y para emprender dicha tarea, construyo una base de datos y los analizó por medio de métodos cuantitativos. De este modo, veo cómo han cambiado los patrones de protesta de la población.
Después de obtener mi doctorado, me desempeñé como investigador de posdoctorado en la Universidad de Harvard y colaboré en un proyecto que construyó una bases de datos automáticas de diversas agencias noticiosas como Reuter. De esta manera, tomando como base esta experiencia, quisiera emprender la construcción de una base de datos que contemple a las agencias y medios noticiosos de cada uno de los países latinoamericanos.
Lo anterior permite la posibilidad de lograr un análisis comparativo de los comportamientos sociales. Para emprender esta tarea quisiera crear un grupo de investigación en donde se reúnan a diversos especialistas y estudiantes de distintas ramas como la Sociología, la Ciencia Política, la Lingüística, los Estudios de Área, la Estadística e Ingeniería Computacional.
