I am an economic sociologist working within the area of the sociology of finance. I did my undergrad in Sociology at the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador and have postgrad studies in Economic Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Finance at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education. My research explores how economic, social, political, and cultural factors interact and influence the development of financial markets, contributing to concentration of power and to the inequality in the access to financing. I am currently working on a project on the Ecuadorian Securities Market.
I have also worked in the economic policy and regulation area for the last ten years as an advisor and consultant to several public institutions. The last position I held was as a member of the Council for Economic and Financial Policy and Regulation of Ecuador, representing the Ministry of Planning.
I am currently a doctoral researcher at the Max Planck – Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) in Paris, France. I also teach several courses at Sciences Po – Paris (Campus de Reims) and a Teaching Assistant and Main Lecturer: Sociology of Markets, Statistics and Introduction to Sociology.
