I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Golub Capital Social Impact Lab and the Stanford Digital Economy Lab, under the supervision of Susan Athey and Erik Brynjolfsson.
I study the political economy of economic and political development, with a focus on political accountability. Specifically, I have worked on understanding the role of (mis)information in (deteriorating) improving political accountability, the causes and effects of criminal-political violence on democratic representation, the effects of the lack of coordination across levels of government, and the causes and consequences of dynastic politics in democracies.
Before joining Stanford, I obtained a Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government (PEG) from the Harvard Kennedy School and the Economics and Government departments at Harvard University. I also obtained a B.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Political Science from Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) in Mexico City. I was raised in Durango, Mexico.
