National Researcher (Candidate)

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM).  Much of my work focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of violence.  I am particularly interested in topics related to both criminal and political violence.  My research employs multiple research methods, including formal theory, experimental methods, and archival research.

I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from New York University.  Previously, I graduated from a BA and a MA in Philosophy from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and a BA in Economics from Universidad Externado de Colombia.
