BIO

I am a PhD candidate at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). I hold a master in International Development with a specialisation in Politics and Governance from the University of Manchester.

I also completed a postgraduate certificate from the London School of Economics and Political Science while participating in the Hansard Research Scholar Programme. I obtained an undergraduate degree (bachelor and licenciatura) in Political Science and Government from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Peru.

My doctoral projects examines the effects of the judicialisation of grand-corruption in the Lava Jato era (Peru and Brazil). My broader research agenda includes gender and politics, international development, party finance and electoral spending, and governance. 

I am fluent in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, and also have a working knowledge of German.
