Overview

I am a Sociologist from Universidad Central of Chile. I have studied for a Master's (MSc) in Social Policy (research) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and I am finalising a PhD research in Sociology at the Australian National University (ANU). I have at least ten years of professional experience designing, organizing, implementing and leading qualitative and quantitative research projects in the public and private sectors. In this work, I have worked in research teams to evaluate public programs and market research and marketing evaluation for different study centres and private companies. My doctoral thesis analyses the subjective perceptions of inequality and its effects on today's society. My subjects of interest are inequality, subjective perceptions of society, social classes, social stratification and social mobility.
