I’m a Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, focusing on water justice issues. My current research draws upon econometric, geospatial, and hydrological analyses to examine how Chile's neoliberal approaches to water, agricultural, and trade policy have impacted inequalities in access to, and distribution of, water and land. I’m passionate about using science and data to empower social movements, inform policy, and fight for a world that ensures food and water as fundamental human rights rather than commodities.
Before joining ESPM, I studied environmental justice, data science, and music, with my senior thesis assessing the extent to which drought and power disparities drive water rights markets across Chile. Prior to that (and during too—thanks COVID!), I grew up in Buenos Aires, Singapore, Dubai, and Santiago. I love trail running, reading, playing/listening to/composing music, brewing tea, practicing ashtanga yoga, and nerding out about fútbol tactics.
