I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I am a Graduate Fellow of the ILS Law and Society Graduate Fellows Program and of the Institute for Research on Poverty, and a Graduate Student Affiliate of Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies.

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.

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