His dissertation entitled “Fissures of the State: krisis of sovereignty in Latin America's mid-twentieth century”, studies the fracture and crisis of “sovereign reason” in diverse cases such as Roa Bastos’ Paraguay, the Argentinian foundational state, and the Cuban Revolution construction of popular hegemony.

He has translated essays to Spanish & English by diverse thinkers such as Giorgio Agamben, Russell Bermann, and Gayatri Spivak.
