Year of Entry: 2018

I was born and raised in Lima, Perú, where I earned my BA degree in Sociology at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Peru. I am broadly interested in political sociology, bureaucracies and labor regulation. I have conducted research on the strengthening of labor inspections in Lima, Perú and the role of public unions. Before arriving to Brown, I earned my MA in Sociology from Columbia University where I studied Latin American immigrants' participation in the informal economy in New York. I have also worked in Peru doing consultancy on public unions and political reform.
