I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Social Science Division at New York University Abu Dhabi. I study the social dynamics of cooperation and social inequality and my research centers on reward systems, social norms, and cultural integration, with an emphasis on the individual mechanisms that contribute to the existence of complex social structures. I rely on different statistical and computational tools, including online experiments, panel data, machine learning, and natural language processing.
Before joining NYUAD, I completed my doctoral studies in the Department of Sociology at Cornell University. I also hold a B.A. in Education (2008) and B.A. in Philosophy (2009) from Universidad de los Andes (Chile) and a M.A. in Sociology (2012) from Universidad Catolica de Chile.
