Research Interests

My research focuses on the analysis of extralegal factors in the formulation of laws, in Congress and within the executive. In particular, I have studied how digital technologies have made the legislative process more democratic, and what has been the role of bureaucracies in the creation and implementation of the law. Currently, I am investigating the construction of meanings through the use of ideas and paradigms in the migration policies of 7 South American countries, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay between 1900 and 2018.
