Welcome to my website!

My research focuses on illicit markets, state institutions and criminal violence. My book project explains how police informally regulate drug trafficking in metropolitan areas in Latin America and its impact on criminal violence.

I am a PhD in Political Science from UC Berkeley (2016). During 2016-17, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies of the University of Notre Dame.

Between June 2017 and December 2019, I worked in the National Ministry of Security of Argentina as Coordinator of the Joint Institute for Strategic Management (ICCE). I also taught at the Masters in Criminology and Citizen Security Program of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF), the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (UNSAM) and the Masters of International Studies at Universidad Torcuato di Tella (UTDT).

I have also worked as a consultant on public security for the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), among other institutions.
