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.
My research interests include survey/experimental methods, public opinion formation, and (negative) 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 in Latin America, and vote-buying in Mexico.
My work has been published in Political Behavior, Public Opinion Quarterly, Political Research Quarterly, Electoral Studies, Journal of Elections, Political Parties, and Parties, Revista Latinoamericana de Opinión Pública, Política y Gobierno, among other journals.
