I am an Associate Professor of Political Science in the Division of Political Studies at CIDE (Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas, Mexico).  I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

With a background both in international relations and in comparative politics, my research interests include international and comparative political economy, the influence of domestic institutions on international cooperation, and Latin American politics. 

My current research includes the study of the adoption of restrictive monetary institutions in developing countries, the causes and consequences of central bank independence, and the political determinants of FDI.
