I am an MPhil student in Politics (Comparative Government) working under the supervision of Professor David Rueda. My research interests lie at the intersection of comparative political economy and political behaviour. I am currently researching on the political consequences of wealth inequality.

Outside academia, I was a trainee at the Office of the Secretary of State for the European Union (Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and I served as EU Careers Student Ambassador at UC3M-European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO).
