- Comparative Politics
I am a PhD candidate in the Politics Department at Princeton. My academic interests include the origins of colonial investments and their effects on political elite formation, the role of culture in shaping identity and socioeconomic outcomes as well as quantitative and experimental methods. Prior to starting my PhD, I obtained an MA in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences from Columbia University as a recipient of la Caixa Graduate Fellowship. I also holds a BA in Political Science from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and spent my undergraduate year abroad at the University of California, Berkeley. I have consulted for Innovations for Successful Societies and interned at the World Bank (Poverty Reduction and Economic Management) and at the United Nations Association.
