I am a PhD student in the Sociology Department and a MS student in the Statistics Department at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where I am affiliated to the California Center for Population Research (CCPR). My research examines how institutions influence inequality in education and the labor market, with a particular focus in the comparative study of skill formation systems and school-to-work transitions. Methodologically, I am interested in the intersection of causal inference using graphical models, machine learning, and network analysis.
Before coming to UCLA, I worked in Santiago-Chile. I conducted applied social research at the Research Department at the Agency for Quality in Education, and the Center of Public Policy at the Catholic University of Chile. Most importantly, I am a proud son of the glorious city of Iquique.
