I’m an Assistant Professor in the Center for Water Policy at the School of Freshwater Sciences (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee).
I was born and raised in Argentina, where I earned my bachelors degree in Political Science in 1996 from the Catholic University of Córdoba. In 2001 I moved to the U.S., where I got my Ph.D. in Political Science from Florida State University in 2006.
My current research efforts are funded by The National Science Foundation and focus mostly on the management and governance of water, with an emphasis on understanding how policy networks facilitate collaborative efforts among policy-makers. For more information, visit the Water Governance Project website.
Other research interests include the study of theories of the policy process, communication flows in policy networks and their effect on organizational and individual behavior, and the interactive force of environmental crises and weak formal institutions as triggers for political conflict in local and regional arenas.
