I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE) in Mexico City. Previously, I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame where I was also a Garza PhD Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.rnrnMy research interests include survey/experimental methods, public opinion formation, and partisanship. My main line of research sheds light on the influence of political campaigns on voting behavior. I study the influence of partisan identities on voters' electoral behavior as well as motivated reasoning during political campaigns. I also participate in collaborative research projects aiming to understanding why voters support corrupt politicians in Latin America, populism and negative partisanship in Latin America, and vote-buying in Mexico.
