My doctoral research focuses on the evolution of central banking in South Americas' Southern Cone, namely Argentina and Chile, during the Bretton Woods era (1944-1971). It explores the developments of the international monetary system's 'peripheral side' and its stability, stressing out how international cooperation dealt with economies affected by failed state-led industrialisation strategies, adverse terms of trade and slow growth. Thus, the research questions whether multilateral institutions formulated recommendations based on accurate information and to what extent their conditionality conflicted with national economic policy agendas.
I am broadly interested in Contemporary Latin American History, specifically economic crises, monetary policies and political economy during the 20th century. My time in Oxford is kindly supported by the Clarendon Fund.

I have tutored courses on Economic History and Economic History of Latin America at different Chilean universities, including Universidad de Chile, Universidad de Santiago, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, among others.
Conferences, Seminars, and Workshops:
I have enjoyed presenting my research advances in seminars organised by the Chilean (2017, 2019) and Uruguayan (2019) Economic History Associations. I was also part of the 6th Southern Hemisphere Economic History Summer School (SHEHSS VI) in Montevideo, Uruguay (2018).
