Welcome to my website!
I am an (untenured) Associate Professor of Government at Harvard University, but this academic year I am up for tenure.
I received a PhD in Economics from MIT in 2013, a Master in Economics and Finance from CEMFI in 2007 and a BA in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires in 2004.
My research interests include comparative political economy using both theory and empirics.
Broadly, I am interested in political accountability and vote behavior in Africa and Latin America. In particular, I work on clientelism, the importance of information for political accountability, whether education fosters political participation, and whenever possible, I look at the relevance of social networks for these and other development issues.
