Welcome! I am a Distinguished Researcher at the Department of Economic Theory and Economic History at the University of Málaga (UMA). In the past, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institutions and Political Economy Research Group at the University of Barcelona (UB) and a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer of Political Science at the University of Munich (LMU). I joined the Government Department at Harvard University and the University of Nottingham as a visiting researcher. I received my PhD in Political Science and Statistics and my M.A. (Political Science, Sociology, Statistics) from the LMU Munich.


My research interests lie in the statistical modeling of political behavior and preference formation. I have specialized in categorical data analysis and discrete choice modeling as well as policy-based voting and party competition. My work has been published in Political Analysis, Statistical Methods & Applications, West European Politics, Journal of Choice Modelling, and Survey Research Methods, among others.
