I am a second year Politics PhD student at Princeton University, focusing on International Relations, Political Theory, and Comparative Politics as my subfields. I am particularly interested in issues of international law, human rights, institutions, and security as they relate to normative ethics. Before coming to Princeton, I spent a year working in commercial real estate with Cushman & Wakefield’s top investment sales team in Manhattan, NY, acting as a brokerage coordinator / junior sales associate. I am originally from Madrid, Spain but completed my undergraduate degree at Duke University (Durham, NC), majoring with distinction in Political Science and Philosophy.
Beyond my academic studies, I am a fellow of Princeton’s Niehaus Center for Global Governance, I serve on the Search Committee for the Dean of Access, Diversity and Inclusion, as well as being a member of the Latino Graduate Student Association (LGSA), and a regular participant in Princeton’s Women in Political Science (PWIPS) forum. Outside of the university, I am a mentor for Project Access, a global peer-to-peer network which connects applicants from underrepresented nationalities with current students at top institutions of higher education, who in turn provide information, feedback and support throughout the application process.
Last year, I joined the United Nations Volunteer network (UNV), where I worked part-time providing legal and advocacy services for UN agencies in Latin America.
