I will receive my PhD in Political Science from the University of Chicago on June 15, 2019. I study sociopolitical cleavages and inequalities—with special attention to belonging, citizenship, and the discursive justifications of structures of domination. Starting in fall 2019, I will be a General Ethics Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University.

My dissertation focuses on belonging and citizenship in modern democratic societies, bringing together debates of political theory and comparative politics, as well as using qualitative data.

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.
