My research interests lie at the intersection of labor studies, economic sociology, global and transnational sociology, law and society, and cultural sociology. I employ a broad range of research methodologies, including statistical analysis (administrative data and surveys, including survey design), qualitative methods, and historical and comparative research approaches.

Before graduate school, I worked as a consultant at the International Labour Organization and the World Bank, and as a research assistant at the Group for the Analysis of Development (GRADE) and the Research Center of the Universidad del Pacífico. I hold an M.S. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an undergraduate degree in Economics from Universidad del Pacífico.
