PhD Fellow, Dissertation Year Fellow 2015-16
I am PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Notre Dame and PhD Fellow at the Kellogg Institute. I have a B.A. with honors in History from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and a M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
I have a broad set of research interests. I am currently working on projects about institutions, regime change, political parties and voting behavior, including two experiments (one of them funded by the Kellogg) that evaluate the impact of corruption information on candidates’ evaluation in Colombia and Argentina. My dissertation studies the circumstances under which presidents successfully introduce major constitutional reforms.
