Statement of Research Interests:
My research focuses on the effect of institutional variables on voter behavior across Latin American democracies. In particular, I'm interested in how the political context impacts whether voters use party labels for making inferences about the political world. I am also currently working on papers analyzing electoral accountability in coalition democracies.
Statement of Teaching Philosophy:
I believe an effective teacher should carefully listen to students' questions, doubts, and opinions. Teaching is based on a dialogue between student and instructor, and I believe that students learn by doing. As a consultant, my main goal is to guide and help students convey their ideas as clearly and coherently as possible. In order to achieve this, I will challenge students to classify, organize, and analyze the information they wish to include in their essays or presentations, and help them to convey it in a clear prose.
I enjoy a reading a good book, watching a movie, and dancing.
