BA, Sociology, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

MA, Sociology, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

My research interests include sociology of health, life-course, comparative public policy, public opinion, attitudes towards inequality and research methods. I seek to understand the effects of institutional arrangements over individual outcomes. In particular, I am interested in observing how health systems and other policy areas may affect health disparities across the life-course, and people’s attitudes towards social policy in general, and health care systems in particular.
