Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Politics & International Relations, University of Oxford:

I am postdoctoral research fellow in the From Conflict Actors to Architects of Peace: Promoting Human Security in Colombia and Internationally project. I earned my PhD at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver with a dissertation on the Colombian Constitutional Court and its decision to curtail constitutional reform. I make the case that the strength of the Colombian Constitutional Court must be understood as a consequence of deliberative principles rather than strategic action.

My interest is situated at the intersection between political theory – legal theory and theories of social trust – and comparative politics. Before, I worked on the effects of violence and the privatization of security on political institutions – both from an empirical and theoretical point of view. My work has appeared in Colombian journals such as Revista Colombia Internacional and Precedente: Revista Jurídica, as well as LARR and LASA Forum.
