I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University. I received a PhD in Political Science from the University of Chicago in June 2019. I study sociopolitical cleavages and inequalities—with special attention to belonging, citizenship, and the unintended implications of formal institutions.

My dissertation, which I am now revising into a book, focuses on belonging and citizenship in contemporary democratic societies, bringing together debates of political theory and comparative politics, as well as using qualitative data. You can read more about it here.

Born and raised in Mexico City, I received a BA in International Relations from El Colegio de MĂ©xico and an MA with honors in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago before joining the PhD program in Political Science at the University of Chicago.
