I am a PhD student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame. I am also a PhD fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and the recipient of a Fulbright International PhD scholarship. Prior to joining Notre Dame, I received an MA in Political Science at the Universidad Nacional de San Martin (Argentina), and a BA in Political Science at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina). I have also been a fellow at the Argentine National Council of Scientific and Technical Research and teaching assistant at several universities in Buenos Aires.
My work has been focused on Latin American social movements and contemporary activism. My MA thesis examined the dynamics of a massive anti-government protest cycle in Argentina (2012-2013) and the influence of both framing strategies and protester-party interactions over political narratives and partisan behavior. I have also studied the dynamics of digital activism, focusing on the feminist movement in Argentina. I am currently involved in a comparative study of anti-corruption frames within contentious episodes in Latin America.
My research interests include political sociology, social movements, cultural sociology and transnational sociology. I am mainly interested in exploring the connections between institutionalized and contentious political arenas in order to shed light on the complexities of the democratic process.
