I am an associate professor of political science at Salamanca University and research fellow at desiguALdades.net in Berlin. My professional experience includes postdoctoral fellowships in the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (IAI-SPK, Berlin), the Freie Universität Berlin (Germany) and Brown University (USA). I also have lectured in different universities based in Latin America and Europe.

My research lines are focused on the intersection between the State, territory and population. My main areas of study are subnational politics, political demography and political geography, as well as their related methodological approaches. Among the particular subjects covered in my work are: public policies, intergovernmental relations and federal institutions, local power, and electoral geography.

A list of my recent publications includes “Gobierno local y estado de bienestar” [Local Government and the Welfate State] (Spain, Fundación Manuel Giménez Abad, 2012) and “Representación espacial y mapas” [Spatial Representation and Maps] (Spain, CIS, 2013), as well as peer-reviewed articles in international journals and  book chapters.

Currently, I am responsible for three undergraduate courses “Políticas Públicas” [Public Policies], “Políticas Públicas Sectoriales” [Sectorial Public Policies], and “Movimientos Políticos Contemporáneos” [Contemporary Political Movements]. I also teach methodological training courses such as “Cartografía y Mapas en las Ciencias Sociales” [Cartography and Maps in the Social Sciences] and “Introducción al análisis de datos con R” [Introduction of Data Analysis with R].
